Volunteer Experience at Harvest Solutions Farm
Our organization has a long tradition of volunteerism and community work. Last year, LCROC organized a toy drive for Spark of Love and it resulted in hundreds of children receiving toys and sports equipment. Volunteering at Harvest Solutions Farm was another opportunity for us to be community leaders and make a powerful contribution.
“IN ORANGE COUNTY IN 2020, RESEARCH SHOWS 48.8% of Students WERE ELIGIBLE FOR FREE OR REDUCED-PRICE SCHOOL MEALS. Hunger affects residents of all ages everywhere in Orange County. Hungry kids lack the energy and focus to do well in school. Hungry adults struggle to perform at work. Consistent access to nutritious food helps fuel focus, productivity and well-being so everyone can thrive.” (Second Harvest)
"Homelessness is a devastating experience that has a significant negative impact on an individual’s physical and mental health, well-being, functioning, human development, and life trajectory. LGBT youth who run away and experience homelessness are at high risk for certain negative experiences and outcomes." (youth.gov)
Second Harvest Solutions Farm is a valuable resource of food for those in need.
