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, https://www.volcenter.org/food-for-kids. 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!

List of requested food items (note: no glass containers, bulk-size items or expired food please!)
