Food distribution for families in need - Friday at 4 p.m. in Hollywood

On Friday, April 3, families in need can come to the new Los Angeles Food Bank distribution site in Hollywood at 4 p.m. to pick up free canned goods, beans, rice, and other items.

The distribution center is coordinated by the Los Angeles Housing Partnership and located at the Bronson Family Apartments (1229 N. Bronson Avenue). It is part of a new partnership between the Food Bank and LA Housing Partnership that will distribute food on the first Friday of every month.

LA Housing Partnership needs volunteers to help pack food and would appreciate donations of food items - particularly fresh fruits and vegetables.

For more information about receiving or donating food or volunteering, please contact Matthew Valdez at Los Angeles Housing Partnership.
