Sandra has been part of the FARSB team for over 5 years. While her primary responsibilities include payroll and accounts receivable, she's always willing to lend a helping hand or offer some good, sound advice to her fellow team members. Outside of crunching numbers and being the team's "advice guru", Sandra loves to collect anything "Coca-Cola" and loves spending time with family.
Danisha plays an integral role in fighting hunger at the food bank. She may be the first person who greets you at the door or the first voice you hear on the phone, but in addition to that, Danisha is instrumental in scheduling, organizing, and reporting for our programs, all while interacting and keeping our partner charities happy. One of Danisha's favorite things to do is spend time with her girls at the "happiest place on earth"...Disneyland!
Paola joins FARSB with a bubbly personality and an excitement to help those in need. Serving at the warehouse front desk, Paola is typically the first face our partner charities see when they stop by. Beyond her food bank duties, Paola aspires to become a Registered Nurse. Some may be surprised to know that Paola is the ultimate girly girl. She loves the color pink, makeup, shopping, and Disneyland! Her favorite quote is, "God is within her, she will not fall."
Ralph, also known as Ralphie, works alongside Sam at the dock. He likes to help our neighbors in need by giving it 110% each and every day. To keep himself energized for the day, he listens to music-- particularly "Ice Cube." During his off-time, Ralph enjoys hiking the trails in Utah.
Cesar is active in and outside of the food bank. When he is not helping prepare much needed USDA food for distribution, he enjoys watching sports and spending time with his daughter and son. Cesar is a fan of dancing and music, though he admits he is not the best dancer.

Sam has an exceptional work ethic and truly values the importance of his work. On weekends, he enjoys comic books, movies, and audio books.
Anika, also known as Annie, is grateful to be a part of the FARSB food bank family. When she isn't driving her forklift in and out of the warehouse to fulfill partner charity orders, you can find Annie unwinding with a novel, running, or drawing.
