2017 update: ‘Tis the season once again! Add a food bank, a shelter or another other worthy cause to your list and experience the fun of playing Santa.
‘Tis the season! Ashley and I dropped off the bounty collected from our holiday food drive at the San Francisco-Marin Food Bank yesterday and were lucky enough to get a private tour. Given that the San Francisco Bay Area is one of the wealthiest regions in the country, I was shocked and saddened to learn that 25% of the residents of San Francisco and Marin are in need of food assistance. Consequently, I’m so grateful that there are organizations like the SF-Marin Food Bank. While they might not completely eradicate hunger, the 47 million pounds of food they distribute a year must make a dent.
The San Francisco-Marin County Food Bank takes donations and need volunteers all year round. If you would like to get involved, go to www.sfmfoodbank. Happy Holidays everyone!
