Today was the Oroville Gleaners Food Basket annual salmon giveaway, where hundreds from around the North State gather in South Oroville to collect free salmon fillets.

They've been putting on the event for about 20 years, and today, the Gleaners President, Virginia Harvey, said they served 626 families.

That included John Afanador, a former volunteer at both the Gleaners and the Feather River Fish Hatchery, where the Gleaners receive all the salmon from.

"It really means that they are helping a lot of people, especially people with fixed incomes," Afandor said.
The Gleaners will have another salmon giveaway on November 19th.
