The AACFB is a local food bank to its headquarters in Fremont, California, while the Clark County Food Bank supports the community around its Controls Division in Washougal, Washington.
In addition to the employee-match for its annual food drive, Nationwide Boiler donated another $1,000 for a produce initiative led by its very own Meika Pope in Washougal. The donation was used to grow and give back a multitude of fresh, organic produce including cabbage, winter squash, potatoes, beets, onions, and various greens. Grown by local farmer Shady Grove Farms, the produce was delivered by Meika and other Nationwide employees in three separate installments to the Camas Family-Community Resource Center.
