Annual Food Drive

It is currently estimated that 21% of Orange County (roughly 615,000 individuals) struggle with hunger in Orange County.  Children and seniors make up 50% of those in need of food assistance.  Families who once were able to contribute to their community are now finding themselves out of work for extended periods of time and in need of a hand up to make ends meet.  Others who are working for a much lower salary and have to choose between paying the rent and putting food on the table can now turn to their local pantry for food assistance.

Whether you've been feeling charitable or have been meaning to clean out your cupboards for food and drinks you don't plan on consuming, 'tis the season to give a little back to the community!  Our office will be holding a food drive for the holidays.  Everything we collect between now and Tuesday, December 20 will be sent to Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County.  By donating, you can take a powerful stand in the fight against hunger.

If you would also like to donate some time, Second Harvest accepts volunteers who sort and label the donated food and check everything for quality and safety.
