Northern California Food Industries Circle

Since its inception in 1978, the Northern California Food Industries Circle (NCFIC) has represented a uniquely combined commitment among retailers, brokers, manufacturers, and associated vendors to support City of Hope’s humanitarian efforts.

 

The NCFIC’s Board of Directors , comprised of 70 leading executives from every corner of the trade, best exemplifies the scope of this industry-wide volunteer effort. Joined by hundreds of companies and colleagues who participate in the annual fundraising campaign, these dedicated individuals have consistently met and exceeded their goals and raised more than $24 million to support the lifesaving research, treatment and education programs at City of Hope.
