Daily Pilot: Second Harvest Food Bank honored by Petrie-Norris as Nonprofit of the Year

Irvine, CA (June 19, 2024) - Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County and its volunteers received recognition for their collective efforts on Saturday, when Assemblywoman Cottie Petrie-Norris (D-Irvine) visited the farm to present a proclamation naming it her district’s Nonprofit of the Year.

“It makes me very proud to represent such an incredible community,” Petrie-Norris said of seeing the crowd that showed up to serve on Saturday. “We call this ‘Harvesting Hope,’ but it does give me hope. I think we’re living in a moment right now where there is a lot of negativity and a lot of cynicism, and moments like this, when you see people coming together to serve our community, to connect with one another, that’s really special.”
