Benefitting the Food Bank

The holiday season may be over but the giving season never stops at the Food Bank. Most recently I received word that The Moorpark Hotel in San Jose, a Joie de Vivre Hotel, is donating to us $5.00 for every room booked through March 31st. 

According to the Moorpark’s Sr. Sale Manager, Tina Walters, all the Joie de Vivre Hotels create local relationships with non-profit organizations like ours so they can give back to the community throughout the year. 

Reservations can be made at Rooms booked through the website automatically qualify for the donation. The Food Bank gets $5.00 per night, per room, so feel free to reserve multiple nights! 

Do enjoy good food and wine? Indulge yourself and help the Food Bank at the same time. 

Vivace Ristorante located at 1910 Ralston Ave in Belmont will be donating to the Food Bank 5% of the gross sales from their series of wine dinners. The first of the series is being held on Monday, February 23rd at 6pm. The dinner includes a five course meal paired with wines from Hess Winery of Napa. Details can be found on their website at: To make a reservation, email Mike Gunn at
