FOOD DISTRIBUTION

Addressing food insecurity through compassionate service.

Weekly Distribution | Wednesdays 10a-12p

The LLCF Food Distribution Project is a drive-through food distribution project that provides a week’s worth of groceries to more than 125 families each week. The project was born out to a need that developed within our community as a result of the devastating effects of the pandemic. Our organization has served the community of North Long Beach since 1979, however, we recognized a new and pressing need that developed in our community as a result of the global pandemic. While it was a global pandemic that affected everyone, it disproportionately impacted this community. We stepped up to meet some of these challenges, specifically the food insecurity that plagues this community.

Initially, at the onset of the pandemic, we self-funded the project inasmuch as it was less than 20 families who needed weekly food help. However, the effects of this prolonged pandemic significantly increased need. Rising gas prices has further increased the need. We now serve more than 125 families per week. Up to this point we have been relying on prayer and sporadic donations of food and financial resources. It is becoming increasingly difficult to keep up with the ever-increasing need. 100% of the staff in this project are unpaid volunteers fully committed to our mission. A grant from the Port of Long Beach would enable us to continue this vital work, allowing us to provide a week’s worth of groceries to more than 125 families per week from December 1, 2022 to May 24, 2023.
