The Laguna Food Pantry remains open

By Anne Belyea, Executive Director of Laguna Food Pantry

Laguna Food Pantry is responding to the COVID-19 outbreak and staying open to serve our neighbors in need. With the economic downturn, many hourly workers are without work. Yesterday, they were employed. Today (Monday) we served a record number of 188 shoppers in a drive-through distribution program set up in the Pantry’s parking lot. 

On a typical day, the Pantry serves 100 to 120 shoppers. Instead of allowing our shoppers inside to select what they want to bring home to their families, volunteers are bagging food and providing curbside service. The Pantry is open Monday through Friday from 8 to 10:30 a.m. 

Laguna Food Pantry relies on the rescued groceries from local markets.  With the grocery shelves depleted, the donations are slim to non-existent.    

Now that the Susi Q Community Center closed, the Laguna Food Pantry has joined forces with Sally’s Fund to provide food to the seniors who depend upon their daily lunch program. 

If you can, please donate. If you need us, we’re here. 

To donate, please visit the website at www.lagunafoodpantry.org or mail checks to Laguna Food Pantry, 20652 Laguna Canyon Rd, Unit B, Laguna Beach, CA 92651.
