Second Harvest Food Bank recently opened its new Orange County headquarters at the Great Park. A food drive will be underway at the Great Park Pumpkin Harvest. They are looking for canned fruits, vegetables and meat products, dry and packaged goods, refrigerated and frozen products, prepared and perishable foods, and fresh produce. They will also accept non-food items such as personal care products, paper products and diapers.
This is also a neat opportunity to get a peek at the wonderful plans that are being initiated for the park and the upcoming neighborhoods.
