We are practically inundated with information about helping people in need of food. 

During the holiday season, anyway. 

But this month is the farthest spot on the calendar from the holiday season. 

It is also the month of a major Oregon food drive; there's one in California as well.

Farmers and Fred Meyer stores are teaming up to bring in supplies for the Oregon Food Bank Network. 

ACCESS in Jackson County maintains a nutrition program; manager Philip Yates joins us.
