Laguna Food Pantry needs face masks and sturdy bags for their drive-through distribution

As readers know, Laguna Food Pantry is responding to the COVID-19 outbreak and staying open to serve neighbors in need. The Pantry is serving shoppers in a drive-through distribution program set up in the Pantry’s parking lot. Instead of allowing the 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.
