The Great 24-Hour Nutrition Mission
Second Harvest Food Bank
Alden Sanchez of Second Harvest Food Bank says volunteers are always welcome at the Irvine non-profit organization. Donations are needed as well, which is why the food bank’s GREAT 24-HOUR NUTRITION MISSION is underway.
Second Harvest Food Bank CEO Claudia Bonilla Keller says inflation and an increase in post pandemic clients is the reason for this special fundraiser. Although the feedoc.org/giving-day website says THE GREAT 24-HOUR NUTRITION MISSION online event gets underway Tuesday, October 24, we don’t have to wait. We can donate now!
So, let’s make this “a serving hope” Saturday. Gayle Anderson, KTLA 5 News.
