Prior to COVID-19, the Laguna Food Pantry helped 500+ families a week in South Orange County; since COVID-19 hit, the nonprofit is currently helping almost 1,000 families a week. The Pantry collects and distributes 5,000 lbs. of food every weekday. Approximately half of its shoppers have babies and children to feed.

Laguna Food Pantry is located at 20652 Laguna Canyon Rd.
