When money gets tight or when the food shelves get a little bare sometimes a nervous unease ensues. However, you don’t need to panic about what needs to be cut from household budget or what edible meal can be concocted from the remains of food in the fridge. Rest assured that the community will not leave you in a lurch. LA Cares is here to help.
LA Cares, a nonprofit organization, serves the community in two ways. It offers a monthly food box distribution and helps out in emergency situations such as if utilities will be switched off.
Both services have been in high demand. Last year, LA Cares Secretary Linda Burns said, 1,145 boxes of food were handed out along with approximately 15 emergency food boxes.
LA Cares Treasurer June Gladney said the food is received from the Food Depot in Santa Fe along with donations from the National Association Letter Carriers-Branch 4112 food drive, Curves for Women, local churches, play groups and other community organizations.
The community plays an essential role in LA Cares. In fact, Gladney said, without the community’s support, “we couldn’t function.”
