Noah talks to Ann Thompson, Associate Director of Loaves and Fishes Family Kitchen based in San Jose, California. For 20 years, Loaves and Fishes has served Thanksgiving meals and given food bags to low income seniors and families. In past years, the recipients have been mostly immigrants from Mexico and Vietnam. Ms. Thompson says the proximity to the affluent Silicon Valley neighborhoods is dichotomous with her organization's mission of serving the poor.
