Calpine Donates $10,000 to Food Bank

Supervisor Federal Glover, who represents the communities of Bay Point, Pittsburg, Antioch, Oakley and Bethel Island, raised more money for the Food Bank than any of his fellow supervisors. “My district is not the richest,” said Glover, “but District V’s residents have the biggest hearts.”

The supervisor’s office raised $15,405 in the County Cares Food Fight that pits Contra Costa County employees against Solano County workers to see which county could raise the most money per employee to benefit the Contra Costa/Solano County Food Bank.

Lisa Sherrill, community relations manager for the food bank, explained that “each county’s workers try to outdo each other’s county by raising money for the food bank.
The supervisors’ offices and other departments also compete among themselves to see which office can raise the most funds.”

It is the first time Glover won the Little Apple award, given annually to the Contra Costa supervisor who raises the most funds for the competition. Glover’s campaign was
boosted by a $10,000 donation from Calpine Corporation, which operates two power plants in District V.

The $113,000 raised by Contra Costa employees added to the $29,956 raised by Solano will pay for 285,912 meals through the Food Bank.
