Help Feed OC’s Hungry!

shfb_logo.gifSo many of us (especially with the computers and time to read blogs) never have to worry about our next meal, other than the “eat in or go out” question. We get enough to eat, can make choices about our diet, and generally never consider real hunger.

Every year since 2000, I’ve thrown a charity dinner. In years past we’ve given to national organizations, but this year we’re working directly with the Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County.

Expecting just an office with a truck parked out back, I was amazed when I saw their offices and distribution center today. Huge pallets of food, separate sorting and shipping areas, thousands of square feet of storage space. They run an efficient operation too, $0.94 out of every dollar goes toward feeding OC’s hungry, way more than most other charities.

Sometimes we forget that OC isn’t as rich for others as it might be for us. If you’re looking to donate some time or money, think about giving to the Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County.
