Union pride was evident on the Saturday morning of June 7, 2014 as several members of SAG-AFTRA Portland Local gathered at the Oregon Food Bank to put in a shift helping the state's neediest folks put food on the table. 
Nearly five tons of food was processed; enough to supply 7,771 individual meals. And, members had a blast doing it.
"It just felt awesome to be able to give back to our community. To this great state which we all love!" said Local President Duane Hanson, of the event.
