Food Distribution

Bresee launched two meal programs, grocery gift card distribution, and holiday food distributions with the mission of providing free meals to families already in poverty and suffering additional financial distress due to COVID-19. Our Drop’N’Go campaign has fed over 500 families, on a bi-weekly basis, as staff and volunteers pack and deliver meal bags to families and homebound seniors throughout Los Angeles. In partnership with the LA Regional Food Bank, our Grab’N’Go campaign distributed 3,000 total meals, 100 per day, Monday-Friday, between 11:30am-12:30pm from our front entrance lobby. Our grocery gift card distribution provided gift cards in the amount of $300 and $500 to 148 families depending on size. Our holiday food distribution served meals to 985 families in our community during the holiday season. To date, we have served over 500 family members through our Drop’N’Go program valued at more than $50,000, our Grab’N’Go program has served over 3,000 meals to community members, we’ve distributed over $63,000 in grocery gift cards, and we’ve provided meals to 985 families during holiday events. In total, we've provided $198,100 in food security to our community.




Our meal programs are made possible because of generous donors and community partners. If you would like to become a volunteer, click here.
