Women's Fund to be honored at Foodbank's Table of Life

The Foodbank of Santa Barbara County will host its 8th Annual Table of Life Gala, 4-8 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 28, at the Montecito estate of Betsey and John Moller.

The 2019 event will benefit local college and university students facing hunger and homelessness, and will honor the Women’s Fund of Santa Barbara, which (worth noting on the eve of the 2020 centennial of the 19th Amendment guarantee of women’s right to vote) typifies and advances the powerful impact of women taking collective action for the common good.

“The Women’s Fund of Santa Barbara identifies food and nutrition as a vital need in our community,” said Shelley Hurst, Women’s Fund steering chair.

“Last year we proudly awarded the Foodbank a grant of $95,000 for a new refrigerated truck to help serve children, families, seniors and college students caught in the rising tide of food insecurity,” she said.
