Donna Huss Food Drive for North County Food Bank
I love food and almost everything associated with it like cooking, eating, grocery shopping, watching cooking shows and reading cookbooks. I have been fortunate that I have never known true hunger nor been food insecure. That is not the case for many people.
Some of you may not know that for the last couple of months, I've been volunteering at the San Diego Food Bank - North County location. In just a few months the change there has been tremendous. The North County location provides food for non-profit organizations and families. Prior to the pandemic, this location would service about 30 families a day plus the non-profits. Now they are averaging 250-300 families a day and the non-profits!
The need is great, which is why I am hosting a Virtual Food Drive for the entire month of May. Due to the how the Food Bank procures food, every dollar can provide 5 meals. The Virtual Drive is very easy and slightly fun. Just click on the link and you'll see a virtual store where you can "shop". Just drag the item(s) across the scanner and checkout with a credit card. You'll receive an email receipt for charity tax deduction purposes. Pretty easy!
This is not meant to pressure anyone - I know times are difficult and uncertain for many. If you want to join me with a few dollars, please do, if not that's okay also.
Thank you for considering it!
