One-woman door-to-door campaign against hunger

One-woman door-to-door campaign against hunger

In a letter to the Food Bank, Clayton resident, Anna Chan says, “I am a one-woman door-to-door campaign against hunger. In less than one-month, I have personally harvested 1,500+ pounds of citrus from local trees in Concord and Clayton. There is no end in sight. If time allows, it will reach into multiple thousands of pounds of fruit collected. I am hoping to spread the word about my efforts, to spread awareness that fresh produce is accepted at local food pantries.” Read more about Anna’s efforts in the following local news:
