Dr. Sarah Ramirez, of Food Link of Tulare County, was our guest speaker today. She has just completed her first year as its executive director. She explained that what they do is collect the food from USDA, packing houses or where ever it comes from, they store it, freeze it, refrigerated it then distribute the food to other organizations. That food is designed as an emergency supply and is not to carry them for the whole month. In this area, it supplies a vital need to low-income families throughout Tulare County
