Wine & Design: The LGBT Center's Community Food Bank

 

Wine & Design is pleased to be featuring The LGBT Center’s Community Food Bank at its December event.

The Community Food Bank @ The Center provides food assistance to all qualified individuals without discrimination on the basis of race, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity/expression, age, religion, political persuasion, national origin, disability, and/or covered veteran status. That said, a majority of food bank clients are single seniors who are living alone.

Since 2008, The Community Food Bank @ The Center has been providing fresh produce, baked goods, meat, canned goods, dairy and more to low-income Riverside County residents in need of food assistance. Every Thursday evening, The Center hosts a clean, safe and accessible "pop-up grocery store" that provides FREE groceries for up to 275 households. Considering the amount of protein distributed to clients last year, The Center provided more than 124,000 meals to our food bank clients.

Please join us to learn more about The Community Food Bank @ The Center with a discussion and Q&A by Candice Nichols, Director of Programs at The Center.
