Lodi Sunrise and Pacific Coast Producers Team Up to support local Holiday Food Drives

Posted: Friday, November 20, 2015 3:42 pm

When Tracy Williams approached fellow Lodi Sunrise Rotarian Ralph Cesena Jr about a canned food donation for the LOEL Senior Center and United Methodist Church in Lodi, she didn't know what she was in for. 

On Friday November 20th, Cesena and fellow Lodi Sunrise Rotarian Troy Gibson picked-up and delivered nearly 100 cases of canned peach, tomato, mango, mandarin orange and mixed fruit products, compliments of Pacific Coast Producers.

PCP, an agricultural co-op owned by family farmers throughout California, is the leading domestic manufacturer of private-label fruit and tomato products in the United States.

Cesena, a senior manager with PCP, also acquired an additional 20-cases of product for his club's Interact Club at Lodi High School, to support their annual holiday food drive.

Cesena, along with fellow Lodi Sunrise Rotarian Troy Gibson, picked up the cases of canned and plastic cup products to local organizations in need.

LOEL Senior Center will use their product to support the Senior Meals program, while United Methodist Church's will support their monthly homeless meals program. Lodi High Interact Club combined their product with other canned food they collected during their holiday food drive, and donated it to the Lodi Salvation Army.

Another fine example of Community Service Action by the "Best Darned Rotary Club In Lodi"!
