Redding, CA -- Feeding America is a national organization that feeds more than 46 million people each year.  Tuesday morning, the organization packed a large truckload of food, and drove it from the Bay Area to Shasta County. 

Dignity Health Connected Living was there to unpack the boxes, and distribute them to people who have been impacted by the Carr Fire.  "People displaced, people taking care of other families at their house-they haven't gotten enough to feed them," says Marylin Hanna, Operations Manager at Dignity Health Connected Living.  "So many people have lost so much.  Even if they didn't lose their home, their PG&E went off, and their food was ruined."

Food will be distributed to Anderson, Shasta Lake, and various agencies in Redding, just to name a few.

The food boxes will be distributed Wednesday, August 22, at Sequoia Middle School in Redding from 12:30 p.m. to 3 p.m., as well as Central Valley High School in Shasta Lake from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
