Even before the pandemic, there were more than 450,000 people at risk of hunger each month in Orange County. And right here in Irvine, there are many families who regularly struggle with food insecurity.
This is a great time of the year to teach our children the importance of service to others by having the whole family sign up to volunteer at one of the food banks here in Irvine.
