LAUSD Grab and Go Food Centers Distribute Over 3 Million Meals!

LAUSD has been hard at work over the last couple of weeks to ensure all of our students and families have access to the resources they need in these difficult times. On March 18th, 60 “Grab and Go” Centers were opened around the District to provide meals to all. And last week, an additional 4 centers were opened. (See below for a list of all the centers in or near Board District 5.) Over 3 million meals have already been distributed, making it the largest network of food distribution in Los Angeles. Community partners have also provided diapers, toys, baby wipes, and hot meals, which are also being distributed.

The hours of operation of the Grab and Go Centers are 7:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m., Monday through Friday. Two meals are provided per child. Children do not have to be present, however, in order to receive food. Every Grab and Go Center has the option to walk up or to drive through for the meals.

Our office would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all the wonderful volunteers who are staffing the centers during this crisis, especially our volunteers from Beyond the Bell, who have been distributing food at all 64 of our centers. We deeply appreciate your service during this time of need!

We will continue to work hard with the support from all of our communities to make sure everyone stays safe and healthy. Remember to stay home as much as possible, practice safe social distancing, and consistently wash your hands. We will get through this together!
