Next week, we celebrate Thanksgiving. For many, this means gathering with our families, sharing a meal, and counting the blessings bestowed upon us over the past year. Unfortunately, not everyone has the luxury of either family or food on the table. According to Food Share Ventura, one in six people in Ventura County experiences food insecurity. That means, more likely than not, you know of someone in this situation. One way to show how grateful you are this holiday season is to donate to local Ventura food pantries.Ventura Food Pantries Welcome Holiday DonationsThe holidays can be a particularly rough time for some people. When you go shopping, consider adding a few extra items to your cart. Then, donate them to a local food pantry. In turn, these pantries make sure that the goods are ...
