The other Food Bank

I would like to thank Pat Paddock of the Interfaith Food Bank for her excellent column apprising the community of the very real problem of hunger in Nevada County. Ms. Paddock neglected to mention, however, that there is another food bank in the area which also serves the needs of the hungry, and does so without an agenda of inculcating the poor into any particular religious worldview.

I has been my experience that empty tummies and spiritual deprivation are mutually exclusive; one need look no further than current (wealthy) CEOs, as well as certain political leaders who proclaim the loudest their religious purity to note that the dispossessed inhabit all walks of life.
