CC Emergency Food Drive – Donations Needed, Help Available

With many neighbors in our community over the age of 65 and/or with underlying medical conditions, and neighbors who have lost their jobs, and don’t have the means to purchase and pickup groceries during the pandemic, we welcome your help! Let’s bridge that gap by being a neighbor that helps neighbors and donate non-perishable food items to those in need.

The requested non-perishable items are:

Non-perishable items of all kinds. Examples are: Rice, dried beans (pinto, black, lentil), pasta sauce, canned meat (Vienna sausages, spam, etc.), canned vegetables, canned fruit, rolled oats, low-sodium soups, freeze dried meats, fruits and vegetables, flour, chips and salsa, popcorn, honey, canned fruit juice, water. Our highest needs are canned vegetables and canned fruits but we also love staples like tuna, peanut butter and pasta! Our food drive recipients also love getting a “sweet treat” such as cookies.

Please drop off your non-perishable food items at any of the following locations or call the CERT Assistance Call Center at (310) 253-5545 to arrange a donation pick up from your doorstep by Bike Culver City.
