I'm sad to learn that Second Harvest Food Bank has not been able to get the donations it so desperately needs. Feeding the hungry in our community is critical in a just society and Second Harvest does the job well. They stretch every dollar!
A very helpful way of giving to Second Harvest is to sign up for a monthly donation from one's credit card or bank account. That way, Second Harvest can count on your donation during the winter months, but, just as importantly, they have money to feed hungry children during the summer when school is out and there are no subsidized lunches or breakfasts to count on for a decent meal.
We are all in this together. Please don't let our fellow citizens go hungry!

Where I live, in a not-so-wealthy area, the mailmen pick up bags of food for the food banks twice a year. It's convenient for all, and fills the banks with cans and boxes. It works well, if the cash donations are not forthcoming. One of the wealthiest countries in the world, and people going without enough food. Tsk.

Time to kick in another $50 or $100.

Each year Second Harvest comes to 3389 Cork Oak Way and harvests two trees that are loaded with oranges and lemons.

You are invited to do so again this year by calling 650-493-9307.
Be sure to leave a good phone number.

You may also respond to: jimdinkey@jimdinkey.com (best way)

I would suggest next Friday at 9 a.m.
