At Second Harvest Food Bank, every dollar can help us provide the equivalent of three meals to food insecure men, women, and children in our community. We plan to increase the number of meals we provide from 20 million to 30 million by 2021.

Mark Wetterau, Chairman CEO at Golden State Foods.

Mark served on the Second Harvest Food Bank Board of Directors for more than 10 years and has been serving as the Advisory Board Chair for four years. Wetterau offered the food bank more than six months of skilled-based volunteer efforts from some of Golden State Foods leadership to assist the food bank with strategic planning and supply chain maximization. He was instrumental in helping to launch and support the capital campaign for the food bank’s distribution center, securing over $8 million in donations and in-kind services. Due to his leadership, we are able to operate in a building which helps us successfully distribute over 25.1 million meals per year and accommodate approximately 26,000 volunteers to help feed those in need.

The two are like-minded in business and philanthropy, understanding the importance of giving back to the community. They are passionate about leaving a legacy and setting an example for rising, young business leaders in the community resulting in the creation of the Associates Board. The two men have been instrumental in shaping the Associates Board and mentoring the 17 emerging leaders who sit on the Associates Board.

We are grateful for their dedication and support to further our mission of ending hunger in Orange County. They will be honored at the 2019 Second Harvest Food Bank Golf Tournament Invitational on Sunday, May 19, 2019 held at Monarch Beach Golf Links in Dana Point.
