Carissa Mace, president of the La Mirada-based council, is a 2011 Spirit of Volunteerism Award recipient.
The Orange County Food Bank nominated Mace for the award in recognition of her spearheading the council’s efforts to support the food bank, Farm 2 Kids and other programs that provide fresh produce for families in need.
“The FPFC is thrilled to be nominated for this,” Mace said. “It’s really a testament to our membership and the volunteer work that they do.”
One OC sponsors the award, given April 14.
Supporting the food bank is a natural endeavor for FPFC members, Mace said.
“Feeding people is what we do,” she said.
