A Celebration of the NCFIC and City of Hope

 
Established in 1978, the Northern California Food Industries Circle (NCFIC) represents a unique commitment among the region’s leading retailers, brokers, manufacturers and related vendors to support City of Hope’s humanitarian efforts.

Throughout its evolution, the NCFIC’s common link year after year has been its capacity for partnering business acumen with philanthropy. The NCFIC has raised over $40 million for City of Hope, making this industry alliance one of the premier fundraising groups in the region.
