Erika's Memorable Moment

Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services’ (SFBFS) 40 staff members and thousands of dedicated, long time volunteers commit countless hours and boundless amounts of energy to serve this community. Every week one of these staff members or volunteers will be featured answering the question: ‘What is your most memorable moment at SFBFS?”

SFBFS’ Food Program Assistant, Erika Ledbetter, agreed to be the first staff member to answer this question.

“My memorable moment was this past Run to Feed the Hungry. While setting up the water and snack tables the day before the race, a truck trailer hitch began rolling down a slight hill in the parking lot at the Scottish Rite. I, along with five or six men, sprang into action to stop it from hitting anyone or anything. The funny part is that I, a petite female, ran as fast as I could to assist these perfectly capable men, like my little strength could make a difference. But I realized that no matter how small a role you play, it's important to the overall picture.”
