March 14, 2013 - Truck Driving Program News:
After 15 years, 122 classes, and thousands of students, California Emergency Foodlink is closing its Trucking Driving Program. The closure is not due to lack of students or interest from the public but rather due to the lack of funding for the program. Foodlink will continue its services to emergency food providers in Sacramento County and throughout the State of California.
