I’m a lifelong resident of Alhambra and having a local newspaper, like Alhambra Source, is very important to me. It’s the only way to know the issues that will directly affect my day to day, where I live. That’s why I decided to support Alhambra Source with a monthly donation.

I support Alhambra Source as often as I can because I believe a free and independent press is vital to the democratic process. No other news outlet with high journalistic standards consistently covers the stories and issues that matter to our community.

San Gabriel High School students can now donate their unwanted fruit, thanks to a new food recovery program that was launched by the high school and the Tzu Chi Foundation on Monday.

Green bins will be placed around the school for students to discard uneaten fruit and unopened packages of raisins and craisins, according to a press release. The Tzu Chi Foundation will collect the bounty to distribute to needy families.

The program is the first of its kind in the school district and was student-initiated. San Gabriel high school students noticed the amount of fruit being thrown away and went to the administration with their concerns, said AUSD Food and Nutrition Services Director Judy Huffaker. “It was upon these students to do that in coordination with the teachers to say, ‘What can we do to recover that food to give to someone else?'” she said.

AUSD Superintendent Denise Jaramillo, Tzu Chi Foundation CEO Han Huang and San Gabriel High School Principal Debbie Stone were among the officials who joined Huffaker in introducing the program. San Gabriel High School’s orchestra and cheerleaders also performed in celebration at the program’s launch.
