Feeling Thankful This Thanksgiving: FDA Expresses Gratitude For Our Food and Agriculture Workers

It’s been a trying year for all, and this Thanksgiving many may just be feeling grateful that the end of 2020 is in sight.  While we heed the urgent requests from our governmental and health officials to enjoy a socially distant Thanksgiving in this most unusual year, the distance between us and our loved ones should not dampen our feelings of gratitude. 

In keeping with this sentiment, the Federal Food & Drug Administration (FDA) is taking a moment to thank the essential workers who have worked tirelessly to continue to supply our food throughout the pandemic.  Sincere credit should be given to the FDA for publicly thanking the many people and businesses for their heroic efforts.  Gratitude is good and sorely needed, now more than ever.

We at Wendel Rosen also want to express our gratitude for our faithful clients, referral sources, and trusted business partners.  We cherish the deep relationships that we have formed with all of you, and we wish you and yours a healthy and happy Thanksgiving.

Wendel Rosen is also committed to helping our community.  We’re excited to be able to partner again with both the Alameda County Community Food Bank (ACCFB) and the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano.  The increase in need for food assistance is staggering.  The ACCFB estimates that the need has doubled since the start of the pandemic.  Every $1 raised will help provide two healthy meals for local families who need assistance.  If you are able this year, you can donate to the ACCFB by visiting https://www.accfb.org/give/.  You can also learn about how you can donate to the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano by visiting https://www.foodbankccs.org/give-help/donate.html.
