Dozens of people gave up their evening to help sort food at the Alameda County Community Food Bank. In keeping with the season the ACCFB encouraged people to come in costume. As always, they took good care of their volunteers. So we wouldn't go hungry while working to help make sure others don't go hungry, the Grilled Cheez Guy provided tasty grilled cheese sandwiches, soup, pickles and other tasty food. And because the Giants were playing in game 2 of the World Series, they projected the game on the wall of the warehouse so we could keep tabs on the game while we worked.
I've written about volunteering with the ACCFB before. It's a hella easy, hella fun way to help others in a very real way. You can also donate money (for every $1 donated, the ACCFB is able to buy $4 worth of food), hold a food drive, or even a virtual food drive. Remember: they serve 1 in 6 people in Alameda County who otherwise wouldn't get enough to eat, and a large percentage of those are children and the elderly.
