Since 2004, the NAACO Conference Committee has worked with local organizations to demonstrate appreciation for our host cities and to honor its works. The 2019 Annual Conference Committee has selected the Food Bank of Northern Nevada as this year’s “NAACO Cares” charity. The Food Bank provides emergency food services to families through a network of more than 140 partner agencies in a 90,000 square mile service area throughout northern Nevada and the eastern slope of the Sierras in California. They serve more than 95,000 people each month, half of whom are children and seniors. They play a leading role in collaborating with other committed northern Nevada community members and organizations to address the root causes of hunger.
