The pandemic has created a greater need for food assistance than ever before, and a food cliff is looming. The USDA Farmers to Families food box program, which has helped provide fresh produce and other food to Orange County residents since May, ends on Oct. 31st.

Without support from the community, those who depend on us at Second Harvest will be greatly impacted.
Please consider making a donation today: https://www.feedoc.org/donate-now/

Equity Residential So Cal teams spent an afternoon volunteering at the Second Harvest Food Bank in Irvine. EQR making a difference! Thank you for the opportunity Second Harvest!
I wanted to share this today becuase the holidays are coming. Also I have personally been donating 5 bucks a month on auto pay to this organization for about a year now. I decided to do this becuase a really important friend of mine passed away 2 years ago and he was homeless when he passed away. In conversation with him the last year of his life we talked alot about hunger on the streets and horrible it is to be hungry all the time. This is my way of honoring him and to be helpful. There is a ton of gratitude in doing this. GIve it a try! They will take a dollar a month. You would be suprised how much that helps.
Volunteers needed! You can make a difference!
