A Ventura County based non-profit needs more help packing lunches to give to those in need
It’s a way to ensure those who are struggling or are unhoused, have food for lunch.
180 slices of bread are being laid out and filled with ham and cheese, and made into sandwiches, as part of 90 sack lunches being put together by volunteers.
Yara Raymond, one of the volunteers, told KCLU that the lunches are very much needed in the community.
"We all felt the impact of the pandemic, some much more than others and for many, that came with a lot of struggle," said Yara.
The lunches will be distributed by Harbor House, which helps both low-income and unhoused people, in Ventura County – says Cade Raymond.
"Homelessness is a massive humanitarian crisis in our country and if we all just pitched in and supported these organizations we could make a dent in the problem and help people who are less fortunate than us", said Cade.
More volunteers, like Yara and Cade, are needed to prepare the food and lunches.
