Food Drive Nov 7 - 20, 2010 - Help Those Less Fortunate

Join the Team and Make a Difference.

Its up to all of us to take this wonderful community of new found food and friends and show how much we care.

Saturday Night Foodies has partnered with 20 Orange County Gourmet Food Trucks, leading food bloggers, to host Drive Out Hunger, the county’s first mobile food drive. The two week food drive will be held from November 7-20, 2010 and will benefit Second Harvest Food Bank.

Did you know according to the Second Harvest Food Bank, approximately 615,000 Orange County residents are at risk of going hungry each month.

Because the economy has been slow to rebound, donations have been low this year. In turn, the Second Harvest member agencies are reporting an average 35 percent increase in demand for food assistance. We, with the help of the foodie community, want to collect 1,000 pounds of food for the Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County.

What to you do? Easy:
Bring a food donation when you visit your favorite Gourmet Food Truck during the two week food drive.  Oh and spread the word.
