Holiday Hauler Appreciation Party.

“We can’t quantify the value of all that you do — it’s that big!” said Foodbank Development & Resource Officer, Jane Lindsey.

First District Supervisor, Salud Carbajal was on hand to present certificates of recognition to the individuals and businesses.

This outstanding group of volunteers picked up and delivered over 60,000 pounds of food this holiday season! A highest ever! These businesses and individuals donate their time, employees, trucks and resources to help those less fortunate in our community.

The Holiday Haulers is a group of community-oriented businesses and volunteers, founded by Lisa Cullen of Montecito Landscape, who pick up and deliver food that is donated to the Foodbank during the holiday food drives.

The Foodbank serves one in four residents in Santa Barbara County 80% of whom are children and seniors. The Foodbank works to end hunger and transform the health of Santa Barbara County through good nutrition. Call the Foodbank at 805.967.5741 to make a donation.
