Public health officials are warning Angelenos of a potential for an increase in COVID-19 cases in the next two weeks. The Mayor has ordered residents to stay home, and to limit travel outside to take care of essential needs. This coronavirus is highly transmissible, and we need to prevent the spread of this disease from overwhelming our healthcare system.
While it’s important to stay home, I wanted to inform you of the various food resources available to assist as you remain in self-quarantine.
These resources include:
- Critical Delivery Service is a free delivery program for older adults and individuals with disabilities. The service delivers groceries, household items, and other vital necessities to those who are unable to leave their homes due to the COVID-19 pandemic. See link for more info or call 1-888-863-7411.
- LAUSD Grab & Go Food Centers offers free nutritious meals for children at 60 locations throughout the city. This service operates between the hours of 7:00am - 11:00am. See link for location details.
- The Dream Center offers residents in the 13th District free breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The meals can be picked up at 2301 Bellevue Avenue, anytime from 7:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., seven days a week.
- Open for Business in CD13 is a list of the various mom-and-pop restaurants throughout the district offering delivery and takeout! You can view the running list of restaurants offering these services in the link.
I hope you’ll find these resources helpful and begin using them over the next several weeks as we continue to do our part in flattening the curve.
