ORANGE COUNTY, Calif. (PRWEB) November 15, 2017
The Ryan Grant team members helped support this cause in a variety of ways such as sorting through produce and packaging and preparing the food for distribution into the local Orange County community.
Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County, Inc. has 180 community partners including soup kitchens, churches, senior homes, and food pantries. The organization selects the best food from the distribution center in Irvine that can be distributed to the community and help end hunger.
Volunteers make up 40% of the workforce at this event so each and every person makes a huge impact and helps this event be successful.
Grocery stores donate food that isn’t “pretty” enough to go on the shelf but is still edible which the organization calls Grocery Rescue. Volunteers then sort and distribute this food to local partners, helping to make sure people don’t go hungry!
