Residents and families flooded the drive-through as volunteers diligently filled their trunks with supplies made sure traffic flowed as smoothly as possible. Grateful drivers shouted, “Gracias!” (“Thank you!”) and “Dios te bendiga!” (“God bless you!”) as they received supplies.

Saturday’s event was the fourth in Supervisor Morales’s “Feeding Orange County” initiative, which has three objectives:
– Combating food insecurity and food deserts
– Providing supplies to families hit hardest by the COVID-19 pandemic
– Saving the environment by redistributing goods to reduce landfill waste

“COVID-19 has impacted the lives of many people, many people are desperately in need,” said Supervisor Morales. “People are suffering and they are desperate to find food on their table.”
