CAPOC is holding a community celebration of its 50th anniversary with this kick-off event bringing the community together to commemorate its roots of community action as Orange County’s designated anti-poverty fighter. ‘We are working to bring prosperity and economic life back to low-income communities.
We noticed that Orange County was becoming a center for locally grown businesses that help to create jobsand return life to distressed communities. The Craft brew and gastropubs are leading the way to buildbusiness neighborhoods such as downtown Santa Ana and Anaheim that are ushering a new renaissance forthe community, said Alan Woo, CAPOC Director of Planning and Fund Development.
‘By supportingthis event, you are not only enjoying some of the best beer and bites in the county, but you are helping toprovides services to the poor and hungry.
Funds raised from the event will help the OC Food Bank buy thousands of pounds of fresh produce for foodinsecure families and individuals who cannot afford to purchase fresh produce or nutritious meals. Therecent effects of the California water drought have dwindled the amount of fresh produce donations to theOC Food Bank impacting the Food Bank’s ability to serve the growing number of food insecure in OrangeCounty.
‘Providing fresh produce is an essential part of our Farm2Families program ensuring that youngchildren and families receive essential nutrition as part of their consistent diet, said Mark Lowry, CAPOCFood Bank Director.
“As the Brew City of Southern California, we are proud to host the brews and bites event in our city, saidAnaheim Mayor Tom Tait. ‘Here’s a chance to come to Anaheim to enjoy local craft beer and deliciousfood, all while helping those in need. I would say that’s a win, win, win!”
