No rain, sleet or snow could stop Councilmember Curren Price from delivering on his promise of ensuring local families in need feel supported during the COVID-19 pandemic.
During what turned out to be a rain filled food distribution event held on Jan. 23 at Exposition Park, thousands of residents and families came through, each receiving a 40lb box of food filled with chicken, vegetables, eggs, fruits and other essentials.
“If it's one thing we have learned from the pandemic, the weight of the world rests heavily on our community’s shoulders and it is up to all of us to be ready to help,” said Councilman Price. “So as long as our neighbors are in need, we will be here front and center to try to alleviate some of the pressures being felt.”
The CD 9 food drive-thru giveaway was made possible in partnership with the Labor Community Services, Los Angeles County Federation of Labor and the Los Angeles Football Club (LAFC). Stay tuned for upcoming food giveaways planned for District 9 families. For more information, call Councilmember Price’s District Office at (323) 846-2651.
