San Francisco Food Bank Thanks Wu Ortho

The Wu Orthodontics team received great thanks from Paul Ash, the executive director of San Francisco Food Bank for their time and efforts in packaging food supply for the hungry.

On behalf of the San Francisco Food Bank, I want to thank you for the time and effort you recently spent helping end hunger in San Francisco.

In the year ending June 30, we distributed 33.5 million pounds of food to 132,000 people in need - and volunteers like you are absolutely vital to achieving that goal. The work done each year by you and more than 15,000 other Food Bank volunteers - sorting food donations, gleaning fresh produce, assembling grocery boxes, and repacking bulk food items - is the equal of 38 permanent full-time employees.

Simply put, we could never serve so many people without the help of volunteers like you.

And volunteering is just one way you and your friends or family can stay involved. Whether it's by making an online gift or keeping abreast of hunger-related issues in our community by joining out advocacy network, the Food Bank and the hundreds of programs it supplies depend on your continued support and involvement. Once more, thank you - and we hope to see you again!
