LOS ANGELES (CNS) – Los Angeles Controller Ron Galperin has released an online map to help people find the more than 1,400 food banks, pantries and other places that offer free food.
Families up and down our state are worried about how to put food on the table as prices for food, gas and other necessities spiral out of reach,” Galperin said Wednesday, May 11.
“The economic pain of the pandemic, along with skyrocketing inflation and the high cost of living throughout our state is breaking the bank for many Californians who are already on the brink of poverty. This map connects residents to critical food resources in every single California county so that anyone in need of assistance can find free, nutritious food.”
Residents can type their address into the site and choose a search radius. People are encouraged to contact a site before visiting to confirm hours and eligibility. Some sites may require photo identification or other documents.
