Veterans Outreach

I enlisted in Nov 2009 in the US. Air Force. My first duty station was Ramstein AB Germany where I was security for COMUSAFE (Commander in Chief, United States Air Force in Europe). Deployed to the Herat province of Afghanistan where I established the first law enforcement section for that area, meant to enforce military law and support locals who were assisting US. Forces during their operations in that region. Separated in Nov of 2013, moved to San Luis Obispo where I became a volunteer with the County Veterans Services Office while attending Cuesta College to study psychology in hopes of one day becoming a therapist who can assist my fellow veterans.

Food Bank Coalition of San Luis Obispo County

Kevin Drabinski has served as the CEO of the Food Bank Coalition of San Luis Obispo County since Valentine’s Day 2017. During 2017, the Food Bank delivered 5 million pounds of food to the one in six persons in our county who have limited or uncertain ability to acquire nutritionally adequate and safe food. Fully half of the food distributed was produce. Some 40% of the food distributed went to children while 20% went to seniors.

The strength of the Food Bank lies in being a coalition. It serves as the primary source of food for 94 agency partners throughout the county who help in our mission to alleviate hunger and build a healthier community.

The Food Bank moved into its new warehouse across from the airport in San Luis Obispo in November 2016, and it is from this location that the needs of those who hunger will be met for the next generation.

Kevin is a 30 year resident of San Luis Obispo where he and his wife raised their two loving daughters.
