The Los Angeles Unified School District will continue to feed students, families and individuals seeking food assistance during winter break, but its Grab & Go Food Centers will operate on a modified schedule for the next two weeks.
Instead of the usual Monday through Friday operation, the food centers will run Monday through Wednesday this week and next. Those who come on Wednesdays will receive five days’ worth of meals per person in their household to get them through the rest of the week until the following Monday.
Regular operations will resume Jan. 4.
Anyone in the community can walk or drive up to any of the district’s 63 Grab & Go centers from 7 to 10 a.m. on the days they’re open. A list and map of the centers’ locations are available on the district’s website.
LAUSD has provided nearly 90 million meals since schools closed in mid-March because of the coronavirus pandemic.
The district, through donations from businesses and others, has also distributed more than 17 million other items and supplies, such as diapers, books, toys, sporting equipment and treats. Anyone wishing to donate can visit LAStudentsMostInNeed.org for information.
