For more than nine years, Oakland resident Dan McClosky has worked tirelessly to help feed the hungry in the Bay area, raising money and collecting food through local synagogues for the annual Holiday Dinner Drive. To date, he has raised more than $293,000 for the Alameda County Community Food Bank. For his efforts, Tyson Foods, Inc.  has named McClosky a “Hunger All-Star of the Month,” an honor that comes with a 1,000-pound donation of protein to his favorite charity and more than 15 tons of protein to the Food Bank, the organization that nominated him.
