Thanks to the attendees at this year’s Golden Apple Awards on March 26 at the McKenna Center in New Braunfels, Texas. We had 325 attendees and a great time seeing you outside of the Food Bank. Thanks to the SAFB Community Kitchen for a delicious dinner! We heard from Tess Coody-Anders, CEO of Resolute Health on how health and poverty are directly related; a fact many of you see in your work with your clients and customers.

Congratulations are in order for our 2015 Golden Apple Award winners. Check out the list and photos from the event inside the newsletter!
