Local 3634: Feeding the Hungry at Christmastime

'Tis the season of good will, and a group of MTA Supervisors in AFSCME Local 3634 took the cue recently by supporting the mission of  the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank.

The Local's President Al Cromer and other union officers and members went to a food sorting center and helped to pack supplies that will be distributed to hungry, low-income and homeless Angelenos at shelters, churches and senior centers.  They packed over 1,900 boxes of cereal, rice, milk, tuna, and vegetables.

In addition, Local 3634 donated funds in the amount of $1,250, which the food bank says will support about 5,000 meals.

With a network of more than 650 partner agencies, the Food Bank's sprawling distribution network has delivered 1 billion pounds of food since 1973, feeding about 300,000 people every month.

Pictured at the Food Bank are union officers and rank-and-file members, Al Cromer, Anita Stephen, Anita Anderson, Melvin Stokes, April Richie, Frank Forde and Veronica Gunn.
