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. When asked what he likes the most about working at the food bank, he responded, "working at the food bank is fulfilling. Everyday brings an endless bounty of opportunity."

Jorge is a pro when it comes to driving a forklift and semi-truck to help distribute food out into the community on behalf of the food bank. During his time off, Jorge enjoys visiting family in Mexico, going on long walks in comfy shoes, and collecting souvenirs from his travels.

Jose loves being able to give back to his community as a fleet driver. When he's not on the road, you can find him spending quality time with his grandchildren or watching his favorite team - the Dodgers! 

Joel is a firm believer in serving those who need it most. For over 6 years Joel has dedicated himself to helping seniors and vulnerable neighbors alike, by making deliveries on behalf of the food bank. He is a huge fan of camping, car shows, and traveling to new places.
