Supporting Families with Food: How to Give

Thank you for supporting the children and families of Orange County Schools during this unprecedented time of difficulty. Your donation will go directly to the purchase of non-perishable foods for hundreds of families currently experiencing food insecurity. In the first week, over 600 families received boxes of food, and we expect the need to grow as the situation evolves.
