Addressing food insecurity through compassionate service.

Weekly Distribution |
Wednesdays 10a-12p

The food distribution ministry provides groceries to over 300 each week.  Each Wednesday, we distribute groceries to families via a drive-through distribution program. We also reach our unhoused community by delivering canned food items and hygiene products to them 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.

Our Mission

The mission of the Light and Life Food Distribution Program is to demonstrate the love of Christ through tangible acts of compassion
that addresses food insecurity in our community.

Our Guiding Principle

We offer services in the same way Christ offered services to the marginalized and underserved of His day –
without judgment, and with dignity and respect for their personhood.
