When the Food Distribution Center dispatched its 90 millionth pound of food for the county's needy, a computerized alarm went off at the agency's headquarters in Orange, the signal for an impromptu celebration. "I was startled because I wasn't thinking about it," said John Chestnut of Orange Elderly Services Inc., the charity that set the bells ringing last week by sending out that historic pound of food.

The holidays are here, and the Food Distribution Center is hungry. Despite an infusion last weekend of donated canned goods, courtesy of a countywide Boy Scout food drive, the center's appetite for more volunteers, money and food remains high.

At the warehouses of the Food Distribution Center, a nonprofit food bank that helps feed more than 180,000 Orange County residents a month, the cauliflower is piling up. So are the boxes of cereal, canned goods and thousands of other food and personal care items that the center regularly distributes to 256 charitable organizations in the county. "If we don't get the cauliflower out, we are going to have to dump it," said Fred Pratt, the food center's director. "We don't want to do that."

The Food Distribution Center usually relies on manufacturer mistakes to help feed some of the estimated 400,000 Orange County residents who face hunger each month. This summer, the food bank's directors asked company employees to give on their own by launching the first corporate food drive in the center's 11-year history. About 36,000 pounds of food have come in since June 1, and the center anticipates reaching 50,000 when some large corporations hold drives in July and August.
