It started as a simple idea 30 years ago - an answer to a question that was not yet fully formed.
The year was 1984 and we had only begun to imagine what was possible. The Food Bank itself was still in its infancy, and yet we were very confident that we were on to something important. We were still operating out of an old rented warehouse using donated trucks and mostly volunteer labor. We had found congregations and communities of people who wanted to work with and support us, but what could we do together to show our common values and commitment?
