Hunger in San Francisco
I recognize that it’s the holidays and that for many of us money is very tight these days. But, that is no excuse for not helping to feed those that are less fortunate. My glorious, and well decorated, mother has been helping the hard-up and the elderly for more than twenty years now in Santa Cruz county and she has always provided inspiration for me to stay active in the fight against hunger in America and in helping those abroad. I often spend, what little time I have, offering my aide and financial support in helping the SF Food Bank and Glide Church feed the hungry, in association with the One Brick organization. San Francisco is a difficult place to survive in, when homeless, given the high cost of living; with such we have an abundance of homeless and working poor. As a result, the San Francisco Food Bank is in need of financial support, as emphasized by the video below, to which you can donate here.
This short film was made for YouTube’s Video Volunteers November Spotlight: Hunger in America, hosted by David Arquette, Feeding America and the One x One Foundation. The San Francisco Food Bank distributed over 33.5 million pounds of food in 2008. A $1 donation is turned into $9 worth of food distributed throughout the Bay Area. This winter, make a difference by donating a dollar, your time, or non-perishable food items to your local Food Bank.
