Food for Kids Drive Thru

October 29, 2020

The Torrance Chamber Women In Business Group will host a Food for Kids Drive Thru on Thursday, October 29 from 3:30 to 6 p.m. at The Volunteer Center parking lot.

The event benefits the Food For Kids program, Under normal circumstances, they work with select school partners in the South Bay, Harbor and Long Beach areas (schools where at least 80% of the students are eligible for Free and Reduced Price Meals). However, during this pandemic, the program has pivoted to delivering to schools as well as setting up drive-by pickups since food insecurity is a much greater problem these days.

Shop for a few or more non-perishable food items (list below) and do a quick, safe drop-off to help restock the shelves of the Volunteer Center’s Food For Kids Program!
