it has raised $10,670 for the Foodbank of Santa Barbara County. For the entire month of November, Presqu’ile accepted donations to the Foodbank in lieu of wine tasting fees, with the goal of raising much-needed funds for the Foodbank during the critical holiday season. In addition to providing more than 440 complimentary tastings, Presqu’ile matched all donations dollar for dollar. The funds raised were presented to the Foodbank on Wednesday, December 7th by members of the Murphy family, the owners of Presqu’ile. The Foodbank plays a critical role in the lives of many people in the Santa Barbara County community. In fact, one in four people in the county received food support last year from the Foodbank, with nearly half of those being children. In addition to giving out almost 10 million pounds of food last year, the non-profit Foodbank is a leader in the county, providing education and other resources to a network of hunger-relief charities and their communities. “The Foodbank does incredibly important work,” says Presqu’ile Cofounder and President Matt Murphy.
