County Supervisor Solis Plans Door-to-Door Food Giveaway at Ramona Gardens in Partnership with SEE-LA, Cedars Sinai & HACLA

LOS ANGELES – On Monday, June 15, 2020, Supervisor Hilda L. Solis will join the Housing Authority of the City of Los Angeles (HACLA) for a large door-to-door food distribution for Ramona Gardens residents. Located in the Boyle Heights neighborhood of Los Angeles, California, Ramona Gardens is part of Los Angeles County’s First District, which Supervisor Solis so diligently serves.

The food distribution will take place from 9:00am-10:30am and residents who won’t be home during this time will have the opportunity to schedule a delivery time convenient for them. Additional partners who have come together to make this happen include SEE-LA, Cedars Sinai, Legacy LA, Grifols, LA84 Foundation, Baby2Baby, LAPD’s Community Safety Partnership (CSP) Program and the Boys & Girls Club of West San Gabriel Valley and Eastside.

“We know that, unfortunately, food insecurity is still a challenge in certain neighborhoods and communities,” said HACLA CEO Doug Guthrie. “Especially during these times when it’s more difficult for individuals to leave their homes, it’s important for families to have access to fresh groceries and produce. We’re grateful for partners like Supervisor Solis who are committed to their communities, who see a need and take the lead.”

“The COVID-19 pandemic has been met with heart-wrenching and widespread hunger among hardworking families in communities throughout Boyle Heights,” said Los Angeles County Supervisor Hilda L. Solis. “I am working with the Housing Authority of the City of Los Angeles, SEE-LA, Cedars-Sinai, Baby2Baby, and many other service-minded community groups to make sure that families don’t go hungry. I am committed to fighting hunger, and I want people to know that if you need food, we are here for you.”
