Hungry By the Numbers 

HAYWARD -- Families receive food at a food distribution organized every month by Hope for the Heart in Hayward. Many people begin lining up for food the day before, and sleep on the sidewalk in order to make sure they receive food before it runs out. Many families are immigrants from Mexico, and don't have enough money to buy food or pay rent. Food for the program comes from the Alameda County Community Food Bank. The people distributing the food are all volunteers, organized by local churches. Pictured: Oscar Fernandez receives food and paper goods at the food distribution.
