Long Beach residents in need of food can do it drive-in style at Cabrillo High School in West Long Beach on Saturday morning.
Between 9 a.m. to noon, residents can line up in their vehicles in the campus parking lot in four lanes, each with six stations, where city staff and volunteers will load up their trunk with the food items.
Each household will receive 80 pounds of food packages that will include a shelf stable box, meat, dairy and produce.
Organizers ask attendees to make space in their vehicle trunks and to limit food pickup to one household per car. (If someone’s vehicle doesn’t have a trunk, distributors will place the food in the back seat, so organizers advise no backseat passengers.)
Each household will also receive a packet with nutrition education resources including recipe cards, tip sheets and nutrition assistance program enrollment information for supplemental nutrition programs Women, Infants and Children (WIC) and CalFresh.
The event also requires residents to wear face masks and to not attend if they have been diagnosed with COVID-19 or have any coronavirus symptoms.
This event is being organized by the city’s health and human department services’ Healthy Active Long Beach, in partnership with multiple city departments and the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank.
