2022 CA Propositions & Support for Manna
Focus of Brunch Meeting – Saturday, October 8,
Does YES mean I don’t want a measure to become a law or does voting NO mean a proposition will become legal in California? Answers to these questions and ways you can help reduce food insecurity will highlight DWCCV’s in-person champagne brunch meeting at Saturday, October 8, from 9 to 11 AM. Because internet connectivity is unstable, the brunch meeting will be accessible only in person at The Landing Grill and Sushi Bar, 32123 Lindero Canyon Road, Suite 109, Westlake Village, CA.

To Brunch Meeting
Manna’s New Location Expands Food Choices & Services
For 50 years, Conejo Valley residents experiencing food insecurity, would have to line up in front of a 700-foot home. That all changed in late August, when the Manna food bank officially opened its doors to 5,000-square-foot facility at 95 N. Oakview Drive in Thousand Oaks.
Leanne Portzel has served with Manna Conejo Valley Food Bank for the last two years, most recently as its Executive Director. Prior to joining Manna, Leanne spent more than 20 years working in fundraising strategy for nonprofits.
Originally from the east coast, she earned degrees from the University of North Carolina and University of South Carolina. Leanne has lived in the Conejo Valley for five years—moving ‘over the hill’ after living on Pepperdine’s campus for 12 years. She is married with two college-aged children, and a very sweet lab/golden retriever mix dog.
DWCCV will be collecting donations for Manna during this month’s brunch meeting. Tax-deductible donations are encouraged to help support the food pantry’s day-to-day operations, including its programs and bulk food purchases. Cash and checks made payable to Manna Food Bank will be accepted.
