Food Bank Heroes

All of these wonderful individuals are considered heroes of the food bank, because they had dedicated their lives to serving others and made a large impact on our lives. Unfortunately, over the years we have lost many of these wonderful heroes. But, everyday, their  memories will live on through the lives of those they have helped and people they have touched with their devotion.

In loving memory of:
