Here’s a couple of places offering free food provisions this weekend

Those who could benefit from some free provisions for their pantry can find support this weekend with these two local food drives.


Community non-profit Help Me, Help You has partnered with Revive Church, The Museum of Latin American Art (MOLAA) and Councilwoman Jeannine Pearce to offer a weekly food drive for those who could use it. While the drive prioritizes low-income families and those experiencing homelessness, the drive encourages anyone in need to stop by.

This Friday, Nov. 20, locals can visit Revive Church at 668 Obispo Ave. from 1 to 2:30 p.m. and choose from a selection of canned goods and non-perishables.

If you’re unable to make it this Friday, you can also stop by MOLAA, at 628 Alamitos Ave. next Friday, Nov. 27 from 4 to 6 p.m.

Food will be given out on a first-come-first-served basis until supplies run out.
