And no one knows how far this support will go than Derry Englund, owner of Englud's Cafe and Catering in Concord, the local business that will be catering the Food Bank's most important fundraiser with a gourmet lunch. His support of the Food Bank goes back nearly two decades.
When the Food Bank first approached Derry many years ago to ask if he would cater a fundraiser, he had just moved Englund's - which was founded in 1988 - to its Port Chicago Highway location. Derry thought the Food Bank "was in some church basement somewhere."
Working with staff and visiting the Concord warehouse "was a real eye-opener to me," he said.
"What I like to tell people about the Food Bank is the number of meals covered. When people picture the Food Bank, I think they picture something small. But in actuality, you can drive a semi-truck into the freezer," Derry says with a laugh.
Before founding Englund's, he was in the meat retail business. Along with catering weddings and other special events, he sees Englund's role as vital to helping the community by catering nonprofit events at a great value so resources can go to help clients. Derry, a lifelong resident of the Concord and Clayton area, helps the community in other ways as well. Englund's Catering Service donates food directly to area shelters, Derry helps veterans' associations and before he founded the company, he worked in youth services. Englund's also caters the Chamber of Commerce mixers held at the Food Bank and is a favorite lunch spot for Food Bank employees.
Working with food every day, Derry sees there is plenty to go around. "Hunger should not be an issue in the United States," said Derry,
He challenges Admiral's Garden participants to take a closer look at the Food Bank.
"I always challenge them to go out and look at the location and take a tour," said Derry.
