'Tis the season to give thanks for what so many of us have, and to take some time, effort, and, if possible, funds to help out those who may be less fortunate. Right now organizations focused on feeding those who are in need are in need of donations from those who can afford to spare, and this includes our local LA Regional Foodbank.

This month, we have an opportunity to give back while we're out shopping to stock our own larders:

The LA Regional Foodbank has partnered with Whole Foods Markets in Los Angeles to conduct a fresh produce drive throughout the month of November - the first system-wide drive of its kind for both Whole Foods and the LA Foodbank. Customers will be able to buy vouchers for fresh produce like carrots, potatoes and apples (something the Foodbank doesn't get often) as well as the usual non-perishable items. Once the vouchers are collected, the bulk produce will be delivered directly to the LA Foodbank.
