Staff & Board
Our small but mighty team
River City Food Bank is a grass-roots community effort, but these professionals make sure that our program is run with integrity and efficiency.
Eileen has deep roots in the Sacramento community, as a fourth generation resident. After serving as the admissions director for a local Catholic girls’ high school, Eileen joined RCFB as its executive director in 2003. Eileen sees the executive director position as a way to use her professional skills, and serve others in need.
Since 1998, Steve has run the day-to-day operation of River City Food Bank, overseeing the process of client intake (to verify eligibility), food distribution and other services. Steve has a deep understanding of the reasons people need help from organizations like RCFB, having served as an RCFB volunteer before being invited to become a staff member.
Director of Fund Development
Lisa comes to us with over 10 years of non profit fundraising experience. Her focus at River City Food Bank will be in event planning, sponsorship, fund raising and stewardship. Lisa’s memberships with the Association of Fundraising Professionals and the Non Profit Resource Center allows her to keep up to date and well educated in all areas of fundraising and development. She has strong leadership and relationship building skills and comes to RCFB with a passion for those in need.
CalFresh Outreach Program Director
Jenny Dominguez comes to River City Food Bank with a strong background in community service and collaboration. She served as a community representative on the Modesto City Schools Leadership Council, the Stanislaus County Headstart Council and the Stockton Food Bank, and also volunteered with Catholic Charities, UC Cooperative Extension and Family Resource and Referral. Before coming to Sacramento, Jenny was a Health Educator for Stanislaus County’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, where she taught a class in nutrition and also provided food demonstrations for CalFresh recipients. When not helping CalFresh recipients, she spends time working with Central California Youth Academy, Inc., a non-profit organization focused on keeping at-risk youth in school and off the streets.
Paula meets so many of our growing organizational needs as our administrative assistant. She came to us with eighteen years experience in the banking industry and most recently worked as an office manager for a construction firm. Besides organizing and overseeing our day to day office and operation needs, Paula works with our growing volunteer base that is the heart of RCFB. Paula not only appreciates the importance of volunteers at the food bank, she also makes time in her own life to reach out and help others, most notably by volunteering for the Sacramento Jazz Festival.
CalFresh Outreach Assistant
Amy has strong roots in social service which help her to be especially sensitive and helpful to people needing Calfresh assistance. Before coming to Sacramento, she was a social worker for a foster care agency in Butte County, and then transitioned to work for the Episcopal Diocese of Northern California coordinating youth and young adult ministry. Having a desire to help people, Amy also found time to work an intake desk at River City Food Bank for a year before accepting the CalFresh outreach assistant position in the summer of 2011.
Program and Operations Assistant
Jena Robinson comes to RCFB through the Lutheran Episcopal Volunteer Network. Before committing a year of service to the Sacramento community she lived in Nashville, Tennessee interning for a non-profit food project as well as working for organic farms and gardens. Since graduating from Auburn University with a BA in Human Resource Management in 2009, her real education began by working for many different non-profits with diverse people groups. As the Program and Operations Assistant she hopes to marry her knowledge learned in the classroom with her skills acquired during her various work experiences. She also believes the Revolution will not be fed by chips and soda.
