Sbga Volunteers at Orange County Food Bank to
Assemble Food Packages for Struggling Families
(1888 PressRelease) Packing boxes at the Orange
County Food Bank is an annual event that SBGA
invests volunteer power into each year. Company
leaders and volunteers look forward to returning
with greater force and double the output in
2015. In a world where hunger and malnutrition
are an everyday reality to many countries, it's
shocking to realize that there are people going
without food in our own backyard. Hidden in the
cities and towns of the nation's wealthiest areas
are thousands who struggle to put food on the
table The Orange County Food Bank, in
conjunction with the Community Action Partnership
of Orange County, works to ensure that their
plates are not empty. "On average we send out
26,000 boxes filled with food each month," the
head coordinator of Orange County Food Bank
volunteer events explained. "But the thing to
remember today is that these boxes aren't just
freebies. This is the motivation that brings
these people - grandmas, aunts, uncles, and
little brothers and sisters - the strength they
need to keep going to try for self-sufficiency
and a better quality of life." This weekend, over
100 volunteers from the Small Business Growth
Alliance (SBGA) gave up their Saturday morning to
assemble food donation packages at the Orange
County Food Bank. Given careful orders of how the
box-packing system should work, team members of
SBGA each took on important roles from building
boxes and shuffling them down the line to
managing food groups and taping the final product
shut. Split into two teams, volunteers raced to
fill their boxes and give the most back to the
community.

"It was amazing to see so many people not only
come together in the name of helping others, but
do it so enthusiastically!" the spokesperson of
SBGA's Volunteer Leadership Committee said. "One
employee brought her eight-year-old son to help
who said he now wants to volunteer at the Food
Bank every Saturday." At the end of the day,
both teams together managed to pack over 1,700
boxes filled with the necessary food items to
keep many Orange County families eating healthily
for another week. Team members of SBGA emerged
from the Food Bank warehouse exhausted and
sweaty, but with smiles on their faces and
excitement brewing for the next volunteer
opportunity. "The competition is always fun,"
one SBGA volunteer shared, "but at the end of the
day, the best part is knowing that in these past
few hours, we've helped hundreds of
people." Packing boxes at the Orange County Food
Bank is an annual event that SBGA invests
volunteer power into each year. Company leaders
and volunteers look forward to returning with
greater force and double the output in
2015. About the Community Action Partnership of
Orange County Community Action Partnership of
Orange County (CAPOC) believes that no one should
go hungry in one of the richest counties in the
United States. Through the Orange County Food
Bank, CAPOC works to alleviate hunger by
distributing food to nearly 400 service providers
to over 400,000 local residents in need. That's
nearly one quarter of the county's population. By
improving the lives of the poor, CAPOC is making
Orange County a better place to live by feeding
the hungry, promoting good health and improving
living conditions in local communities.
