A growing number of people in our community are struggling during the pandemic and the most vulnerable families are struggling to put food on the table. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints generously offered a truck full of food – 73,000 pounds of perishable and nonperishable items such as cheese, butter, cake mix, pasta, mac-n-cheese, etc, to the Community FoodBank of San Benito. This is the largest donation the organization has received to date. This amount would normally exceed the FoodBanks storage capacity, but we (D’Arrigo California) knew we could be of help, giving the Community FoodBank of San Benito a place to store the perishable and nonperishable items. This is a wonderful example of neighbors helping neighbors during this unprecedented time.
