Food bank volunteer Martha Aguilera, right, of Huron, hands bags of fresh produce to Maria Lopez, 43, center, and her cousin Reyna Camacho, 45, left, both of Huron, as part of a Community Food Bank drought relief package on Nov. 16 in Huron. A seasonal farmworker, Lopez just finished working the lettuce harvest. She doesn’t expect to find more farm work until January, at the earliest. To get the food packages, workers must either have had their hours reduced or have lost their job because of the drought.
