Over the last several months during the COVID-19 crisis, Second Harvest Food Bank and OC Food Bank have seen record volumes of food distribution. As the crisis continues, it is likely that the demand for food assistance will continue to increase.
I participated today in a food drive today in support of Save Our Youth (SOY). The food drive was sponsored by my friend, Assemblymember Cottie Petrie-Norris, who represents California’s 74th Assembly District. Thank you, Cottie, for this opportunity to help others!
