“Throughout every city in this country, families are struggling to provide the most basic of resources on a consistent basis. In California, 1 in 5 people are living close to the poverty line or are one life event away from a financial crisis. And while the problem is heavy, and we’re reminded daily of the divisiveness in the country; bringing small groups of people together around a social issue is one of the reasons I love the work I do.”

-Chris Romero, Regional Manager, The Outreach Program California.
