Join UC Irvine in the fight against hunger! The fourth annual "Clash of the Cans" food drive will run through December 17. All food collected will help support the Orange County Food Bank.
According to the Orange County Food Bank, over 15 million pounds of food is distributed annually and the need is even greater this year. In addition to the 23,000 people that the Food Bank serves directly each month, it provides food and personal care items to over 300 non-profit service organizations, such as social service agencies, churches, shelters, soup kitchens and senior centers. These organizations serve the homeless, disabled persons, seniors on fixed incomes, the unemployed and the working poor.
