Second Harvest Food Bank of OC

I attended the Second Harvest Food Bank of OC yesterday where Nicole Suydam (speaker) gave a heartfelt speech on the topic of Ending Hunger in OC. According to her recent column in the OC Register, "Nearly 400,000 people in our community don't always know where their next meal will come from. One in five OC children are at risk of going to bed hungry each night. Solutions are well within our reach and each and every one of us is capable of making a huge difference." - 11.26.13
