Allen Matkins Distributes More than 7,000 Pounds of Food to Families in Orange County

OC Food Bank 2013

The Orange County office of Allen Matkins recently participated in the Feed America/Cool Water Ministries’ Mobile Pantry where they distributed food to low-income families in Santa Ana. A group of more than 20 volunteers, including attorneys and staff with their families, assisted with the unloading, packaging, and distribution of 7,000 pounds of food to the families in need.

The Mobile Pantry provides fresh produce and other nutritious food directly to low-income families and individuals in Orange County. With each delivery, the truck transports fruit, vegetables, and dry goods directly to the communities where low-income individuals live. The Mobile Pantry supplies a crucial lifeline to the hungry in Orange County and the program prevents more than a million pounds of produce from being destroyed while those in need face another day without food.
