More than 50 Bank of America volunteers today are sorting, packing and serving food to families in need across Orange County. The financial institution also has launched a nationwide program that matches corporate donations with those of its customers and employees.

Locally, Bank of America is working with the Second Harvest Food Bank, San Francisco Solano food bank and the Boys & Girls Club of Capistrano Valley to curb hunger in the county.

This comes at a time when 615,000 – or one in five – Orange County residents are in need, according to the company.

Nationally, Bank of America has established its Gift for Opportunity fund. Through the program, the Bank of America Charitable Foundation will match every donation made to the fund up to $1 million through Jan. 15.

The foundation also is contributing $1 million to support Feeding America, a nationwide hunger-relief organization, and Boys & Girls Clubs of America.
