What is Corporate Challenge?
The Corporate Challenge is a friendly competition among local companies to give dollars, food, and time to the Foodbank of Santa Barbara County and join the fight against hunger. Businesses of all sizes are welcome to participate. The Corporate Challenge provides a hands-on, corporate citizenship opportunity that encourages employee engagement.
In addition to fostering friendly rivalry and staff spirit, the Corporate Challenge provides a fun and effective way for company teams to learn about hunger in Santa Barbara County and become involved in building healthy communities. Plus, the challenge provides an opportunity for team building and leadership.
