Many of those in need are working, single-parent families. For these women and men, making enough money to pay the rent and still have enough left over to feed themselves and their children can be a struggle. At Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County, we work with more than 300 community partners to make sure that no child or parent goes to school or work hungry. Let’s be the bridge between hunger and self-sufficiency for our neighbors in need.
