Annual Food Drive: Irvine Ranch Water District Helps Feed Hungry

Annual Food Drive: Irvine Ranch Water District Helps Feed Hungry

In this festive season of giving, it’s hard to believe that many people in Orange County don’t know where their next meal is coming from. Once again, IRWD is holding a food drive to benefit Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County from November 14-December 2.

Collection boxes are set up in the IRWD lobby, outside the doors of the Human Resources office. Customers who might be visiting IRWD to pay their bills or conduct any other business, are invited to help us help others.

Please bring in any non-perishable or non-refrigerated item from now until December 2. The focus is on providing healthier items that are low in sugar and sodium and high in protein and fiber.

If you are stumped on what would be acceptable, here are some ideas:

Peanut or other nut butters; canned low sodium vegetables; brown rice; canned fruit packed in water, or natural applesauce; dried or low sodium canned beans; whole grain cereal; canned or boxed soup; whole grain pasta; canned meats and fish packed in water, and healthy snacks such as low sugar granola bars raw nuts or dried fruit.

Please don’t bring expired items, or items in glass containers.

In addition, personal items such as diapers, toothbrushes and toothpaste, toilet paper and feminine hygiene products are also very much appreciated.

Together, we can help those less fortunate. Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County began its work in 1983 and currently distributes food through a network of more than 180 community partners distributing food in more than 240 locations throughout Orange County.
