Community Events - Giving Back to the Community

Contra Costa County employees are generous with their time, hearts and money, and this time of year, a major focus is on putting food on the table for those who are in need.  Check back soon for details of the annual "food fight" -- a friendly competition between workers of Solano County and Contra Costa County -- as we challenge each other to raise funds for the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano.

You can support the Food Bank -- and your County's efforts to bring joy to families in our area.

Many of our cities in Contra Costa have wonderful winter and holiday events planned as well.  Find something near you in the coming weeks:
