Due to the recent developments with the coronavirus pandemic, the Los Angeles Unified School District is offering free nutritious meals for children at 60 Grab & Go Food Centers throughout the city. All Los Angeles Unified School District campuses were closed on March 16 for two weeks.
The service will operate from 7 to 10 a.m. on weekdays at Fairfax High School, 7850 Melrose Ave., Helen Bernstein High School, 1309 N Wilton Place, Robert F. Kennedy Community Schools, 701 S Catalina St., and Berendo Middle School, 1157 S Berendo St. Staff are following guidelines from public health experts and government partners who have called for increased social distancing to slow the spread of the virus.
The service is being held in partnership with the Red Cross.
“The Red Cross is here to help during times of need, and here in L.A., there is need. School cancellations are visiting hardship and hunger on many students,” said Jarrett Barrios, CEO for the American Red Cross Los Angeles Region. “We are so pleased to staff these food distribution sites with Red Cross volunteers and call on Angelenos to join us by signing up to volunteer to help feed our schoolchildren.”
