Food Bank – California’s Green (133)

Join Huell as he learns what a real foodbank is all about. He starts out with Pasadena resident, Tony Collier, who founded the Los Angeles Regional Foodbank in 1973 and ran it out of a two-car garage. The Foodbank is now in a 96,000 square foot facility that serves over 1 million meals a year to needy families, children and individuals free of charge. Huell learns that foodbanking is not all cans and dry goods. He spends the day following a head of cabbage from the fields to the families and learns about the “green” side of the Foodbank.
