Foodbank of Santa Barbara County Seeks Volunteers for Santa Barbara Triathlon

Aug. 24-26 triathlon events still have opportunities to join in the fun to benefit local hunger programs

Celebrating 30 years of ending hunger and feeding the future, have some fun with your friends and family for our cause! The Foodbank of Santa Barbara County is the proud beneficiary of the Santa Barbara Triathlon presented by Montecito Bank & Trust, and we would love to share this experience with you. We’re looking for enthusiastic volunteers to help with various projects each day of the triathlon Aug. 24, 25 or 26! It can be as little as a one-day commitment and a great way to end the summer! Bring your kid, your best friend, or your neighbor and have a great time!

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
