FORT PIERCE, FL. Jan. 23, 2023 ‒ Working as first responders during man-made and natural disasters, the team at Treasure Coast Food Bank is continually exposed to difficult situations. But the agency’s attention to employees’ physical well-being with robust benefits and team-building activities are among the reasons Treasure Coast Food Bank continues to be recognized as one of the best places to work in St. Lucie County.

“Our team members work hard each day to serve 200,000 people living on the Treasure Coast who don’t always have enough to eat. They are resilient, compassionate, and empathetic, and I could not be more proud of them,” said Judith Cruz, President and CEO of Treasure Coast Food Bank.
