Rincon Receives Hero Award from North County Food Bank

From the November/December 2020 issue of the Rincon Voice

The Rincon Tribe was recently selected to receive the Corporate and Foundation Hero Award by the North County Food Bank. The award was presented at this year’s virtual 2020 Community Champion Awards: A Salute to our Covid-19 Heroes.

“We are very humbled to receive this award,” stated Chairman Bo Mazzetti. “It is our continued goal to help our neighbors and our surrounding communities, especially during these difficult times. On behalf of the Rincon Tribe, we wish everyone a safe and healthy holiday season.”

The Community Champion Awards honored individuals, companies, organizations and volunteers who demonstrated outstanding support for the North County Food Bank during the Covid-19 pandemic which has caused skyrocketing demand for hunger relief services.

“Thank you for your truly amazing support for the North County Food Bank’s mission during these unprecedented times,” said Jim Floros, President and CEO of the North County Food Bank. “We honor your contribution to our vital mission in the community.”

The Jacobs & Cushman San Diego Food Bank and our North County Food Bank chapter comprise the largest hunger-relief organization in San Diego County. Last year, the Food Bank distributed 28 million pounds of food, and the Food Bank serves, on average, 350,000 people per month in San Diego County.

Through our North County Food Bank chapter and by partnering with nearly 500 nonprofit partners with feeding programs, the Food Bank provides nutritious food to individuals and families in need in communities throughout San Diego County.
