In Memory of Thomas A. Fuentes
The Board, staff and volunteers of the Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County mourn the passing of Thomas A. Fuentes. Mr. Fuentes served as our founding Board Chairman in 1983 and remained a faithful servant and ambassador of our mission to eliminate hunger in Orange County. We will miss his presence at our annual No Lunch Lunch, an event he created and emceed for 28 years. While Mr. Fuentes is well known for his involvement in the Republican Party, he recently shared with CEO Nicole Suydam that starting the Food Bank with Dan Harney was one of his proudest accomplishments.
We will never forget his passion to feed the hungry and know that his efforts will leave a lasting legacy in our community.
