How are food banks faring?

On the next Your Call, we'll have a conversation about the challenges facing food banks and the services they provide. Individual donations to food banks are down, but demand is on the rise. Some food banks are actually expanding and hiring. They're also providing fresh produce to the community. How are they doing it? Join us live at 10 or send us an email at From food banks to community gardens--what is the best way to meet our community's food needs? It's Your Call with Holly Kernan and you.

Sue Sigler, executive director of the California Association of Food Banks
