Laguna Food Pantry awarded $15K from Sempra Energy Foundation COVID-19 Nonprofit Hardship Fund

The Sempra Energy Foundation COVID-19 Nonprofit Hardship Fund recently awarded the Laguna Food Pantry with a $15,000 grant. Recognizing that smaller nonprofits are having a harder time right now, just as smaller businesses, Sempra Energy Foundation stepped in to help the most vulnerable. 

The money from this very generous donation will be used to continue supplying essential groceries to an increasing number of families in need during the COVID-19 crisis and beyond.

The Laguna Food Pantry serves our neighbors in need

“The New York Times recently reported that the COVID-19 pandemic could double how many people go hungry this year to 265 million worldwide,” said Laguna Food Pantry’s Executive Director Anne Belyea. “Thanks to the generosity of the Sempra Energy Foundation Nonprofit Hardship Grant Award, the Laguna Food Pantry can continue to serve our neighbors in need and provide food to the growing population of those with food insecurity. Our heartfelt thanks for believing and supporting our mission that no one should go hungry.”

“For many nonprofit organizations, the COVID-19 pandemic is straining resources as demands increase,” said Dennis V. Arriola, board chair of the Sempra Energy Foundation, and executive vice president and group president of Sempra Energy. “The Sempra Energy Foundation grants are helping organizations provide critical services, and in the case of Laguna Food Pantry, ensuring nutrition to those in need.”

The Laguna Food Pantry is open Monday through Friday from 8 to 10:30 a.m. and now operating with a drive-through distribution system. Anyone in need is welcome to visit the site once a week. Please pass this information along to anyone who may benefit. The Laguna Food Pantry is always in need of donations.
