The County of Orange is working on updating its General Plan, which serves as a long-term guide for decisions on future growth and development in unincorporated areas.

The General Plan will serve as a decision-making tool to address issues such as new growth, housing needs, environmental protection, and regional services and facilities such as parks, roads, and flood control facilities.

Stop by one of three workshops next month to learn more about the general plan and share feedback.

✨ First District’s Neighborhood Hero Spotlight ✨

Among the countless frontline heroes and community leaders who went above and beyond to help others during the pandemic was Kathy Faith, a Huntington Beach resident with a heart of gold.

After noticing many fruit trees going untouched and unpicked in her neighborhood, Kathy posted on social media, calling on her neighbors with fruit trees to consider donating their unwanted fruits to a local food bank. Soon thereafter, she was flooded with messages asking if she could pick their trees. Not knowing much about harvesting, Kathy soon started picking people’s trees. That was the beginning of Happy Harvesters, a community volunteer initiative that harvests backyard fruit and donates it to local food banks and organizations throughout #OrangeCounty. Most recently, Kathy partnered with Food Finders, a food rescue non-profit in Los Alamitos, to help transport the harvested food and identify food banks, college pantries, and other charities in need.

📣 If you, or someone you know, has a fruit tree with excess fruit that you would like to donate or if you are interested in volunteering, email Kathy at faithkathy13@gmail.com.

🍊🍋📦 Fruit harvested and donated by Happy Harvesters:
2021-22: over 5,000 lbs of fruit
2022-23: over 18,000 lbs of fruit
2023-24: over 47,000 lbs of fruit (so far)

Last week, my District Representative, Jack Du, presented a certificate of recognition at the grand opening of Salt Me Halotherapy in Los Alamitos. This type of therapy is known to provide holistic wellness, alleviate respiratory issues, and improve skin care. Designed to have the microclimate of natural salt caves, the floors are covered inches thick with Himalayan salt crystals, and the walls have salt bricks to maximize the effectiveness of each therapeutic session.

Did you know that nearly 40% of food goes to waste? Food Finders is trying mitigate this ongoing issue with its mobile app, which allows users to pick up and drop off food resources at nonprofit shelters, missions, pantries, and centers. These resources are used to feed people who are disadvantaged and food insecure.

Food Finder’s Food Rescue Program is unique from food banking because it rescues everything, including dairy, bakery items, produce, deli meats, canned and packaged goods, and even prepared items. Their program is called “rescue” because it prevents good, edible, perishable food from being lost in a landfill.

In an hour or less, each food rescue is completed with the help of staff drivers and a network of volunteers, allowing Food Finders to rescue millions of pounds of food annually.

📱 The app is currently available in Los Angeles and Orange County. Download it today to learn how you can help fight hunger.
