I believe that it is possible for everyone in San Diego County to have food available.  Some of the major issues I think are the distribution and exchange systems.  Getting food that would drop and rot into the hands of people who need it..
Born and raised in Greenfield, California (Monterey County) to immigrant parents.  Graduated from San Diego State University in 2006 with a degree in Public Admin and a minor in Spanish. Passionate in helping the community especially the people in need of resources.

As a professional in Business Development, I work locally for a biotech firm, Confirm BioSciences.  My history of commitments is volunteering with enthusiasm.  I enjoy challenges, such as seeking solutions in diminishing food insecurity. Using gleaning, community engaging, and cultivating greater awareness, I strongly feel passionate about Harvest CROPS’ mission.  Together we can make a difference.

Providing what the public already has, seasonal fruit, and giving what the public sincerely needs..  Sergio born and raised in Calexico, California, retired from San Diego, Sherifff, Detention Services, close to 20 years.  Physically limited Sergio spends most of his time resting in bed, laptop on stomach and typing and networking for Harvest CROPS.
