Plumas Bank President and Chief Executive Officer, Andrew J. Ryback, remarked, “In many ways, America is the land of plenty. But for many people, hunger is a very real struggle. Some believe that the problems associated with hunger are confined to small pockets of society, or certain neighborhoods, but the reality is much different.
