Sara Matthew was honored as one of Assembly Member Kansen Chu’s Community Heroes for 2020 on October 2, 2020.  Assembly member Chu has been hosting his annual Community Heroes Awards for the past five years to honor local heroes for their good deeds. The honorees are nominated solely by community members and are recognized during an award ceremony. 
Sara was nominated as a local community hero by Karen and Jeboy Koshy and the Fremont Morning Rotary Club, for the cheerfulness and spirit of service that she brings to the free dining population at Centerville Free  Dining Room, Centerville Presbyterian Church, Fremont.  Sara tirelessly leads the effort to plan, coordinate volunteers, and manage procurement of food donated by local grocery stores. She oversees the team dispensing food every Tuesday and Thursday and greets many of the diners by name.
