Nearly 600 families picked up boxes of groceries this week at a free drive-thru grocery distribution event hosted by Los Angeles County at Stephen Sorensen Park in Lake Los Angeles.
Frozen chicken, milk, macaroni, onions, tortillas and other food and staples were given away to 597 households, Los Angeles County Supervisor Kathryn Barger’s office announced.
Vehicles were lined up for more than a half mile along 170th Street East when the park gates opened at 9 a.m. to start the distribution. The event concluded at noon.
The groceries were provided by the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank, and the distribution event was hosted by Barger’s office and the Los Angeles County Department of Parks and Recreation.
