The speaker at the July 28 meeting was Michelle Riley, CEO of The Foodbank. We have had programs on The Foodbank before, but Michelle gave an update on the current status and recent achievements. Of note is their new 31,000 square-foot facility that will allow the nonprofit to serve more people throughout the Miami Valley, as a result of a grant. The organization is committed to relieving hunger through the acquisition and distribution of food to hungry people throughout the Miami Valley. They rely on donations of food to keep the shelves of food pantries stocked. The past year they distributed about 9 million pounds of food, an increase from 4.7 million pounds the year before. The Foodbank received the highest score from AIB (American Institute of Baking) for food safety. Funding comes from grants, foundations, and mail requests. Their goal is to ensure that food relief is available in their service area to all hungry people, while upholding their six core values: accountability, accessibility, advocacy, availability, collaboration, and service.

Some links of interest to the Northridge area are posted in the panel at the right (see the red buttons under "Other Northridge Links"). They are for The Northidge Alumni Bear Facts website, the Northridge Schools website, and the Northridge Schools facebook page. One good way to show support of the community is to patronize the alumni businesses that are listed on the alumni website: http://www.northridgealumni.org/id11.html.
