Fresno County: PG&E Partners with Food Bank, Red Cross to Help Drought-Impacted Residents

"In their minds they should be at work, not here, in this heat and in this line for food," said Ayala, drought relief coordinator for the Community Food Bank of Fresno said. "We try to make this as easy and as comfortable as possible but they still have to stand in the sun for most of the wait. If they didn't absolutely need this food to feed their families they wouldn’t be here."
