The Foodbank Holiday Haulers are a group of local business owners and individuals who donate time, trucks and manpower to transport food for the Foodbank of Santa Barbara County during the Holiday Food Drive.
“Various organizations have food drives, and the Foodbank doesn’t have the resources to pick up all of the donations. That’s where we come in,” Cullen said. “These small-business owners and concerned individuals reorganize their lives to do this work. They are incredible.
“The Santa Barbara County Foodbank is a vital part of our community, distributing good, nutritious food to those in need, most of whom are seniors and children. We are able to play an important role in their mission of ending hunger and transforming the health of Santa Barbara County.”
