been great ever since,” he said.
This kind of deal hasnʼt always worked out well for the
food bank, so Curado takes joy in how well the ball has kept rolling over the years.
“They support us every step of the way,” he said. “Some people say this is what weʼre going to do for you, for every something that we sell weʼre going to donate back this much. And you never see the money. They use you for publicity somehow and youʼll be lucky if you get 35 cents.”
While Curado was on board early, his team at the food bank initially had some reservations about working with cannabis companies. The concern came around
the branding on trucks, advertising, the website and other places the food bank might want to show their big sponsor some love. After a quick glance around the table when they met on the subject, everyone was ready to move forward.

through, Curado said it continues to be nothing but a positive experience with the cannabis community.
Curado said he is glad to see the influx of support during the holidays. But the standard canned-goods drive doesnʼt so much fit in with the healthy-eating ethos attached to the food bankʼs mission. This makes the kind of financial support the cannabis community brings extra helpful.
“Weʼre not your grandmaʼs food bank,” Curado explained. “What we do here is everything is certified organic. We do as little as possible in regards to canned and nonperishable goods. So weʼre all about healthy, sustainable eats. What Bloom does for us by giving us the cash is weʼre able to purchase stuff for the families that we might not otherwise be able to afford. Simple stuff like milk and cheese that we donʼt always get on a regular basis.
Seven other food banks also will be supported by the program this month.
