Carolyn Solar is the Philanthropy Director at Feeding America Riverside and San Bernardino Counties (FARSB), the regional food bank serving the Inland Empire.
Carolyn has been with the organization for 3 years, leading the marketing, public relations, donor relations, and volunteer engagement programs, ensuring that the food bank has support needed to provide over 18 million meals each year.
She is most passionate about using and developing educational content to break the stigma towards hunger and the value of hunger relief programs for everyday people facing financial hardships.
Feeding America Riverside | San Bernardino (FARSB) is leading the fight against hunger in the Inland Empire by providing food access, emergency relief, education, and advocacy to families in Riverside and San Bernardino Counties.
FARSB opened in 1980 as Survive Food Bank in response to the increasing concern about the dual problems of hunger and food waste in the Inland Empire.
Today, FARSB is the primary source of food to over 250 local nonprofit organizations, distributing over two million pounds of food monthly to emergency food pantries, homeless shelters, soup kitchens, high-need elementary schools, halfway houses, senior centers, residential treatment centers, shelters for the abused, after school programs and more.
With the help of these charity partners, they make up the largest hunger-relief organization in the Inland Empire, making food security a reality for over 1.2 million people every year.
