Many neighbors in our community are one job loss or medical crisis away from food insecurity. Foothill Unity Center leads the fight against hunger and poor nutrition in the San Gabriel Foothills through our food distribution, community kitchen and nutrition education programs. (See Food Distributions Times or visit our Event Calendar for Upcoming Events)

Our Food Program translates to 3 million pounds of food annually through daily distributions that include: Bag lunches and hygiene kits to the homeless; Homebound grocery deliveries for seniors and disabled persons who are isolated, sick, and shut-in; Emergency family food to those that have the ability to cook and store food; and Pet food for those who can’t afford to feed their beloved pets.

Nutritious Food Pantry & Community Garden

We continue to be driven to improve the quality of our food and services. In 2021, after a year and a half of extensive training, our Center was awarded the title of Nutritious Food Pantry by LA Regional Foodbank. That same year we started our own Community Garden Project with the goal of improving the lives and health of our neighbors in need by growing, harvesting and distributing our own nutritious and fresh seasonal fruits and vegetables.


A “monthly” food supply is enough to feed a household for seven (7) to 10 days based on the family size. Families are encouraged to return “weekly” to supplement the remaining days of the month by accessing fresh produce, bread, sweets, and dairy products.

Unhoused persons without the amenities to store or to cook food receive bagged lunches that are packaged to feed a person over one (1) to two (2) days. These lunches can be accessed at minimum three times per week. Hygiene kits are distributed and can be accessed once per week.

With the help of volunteer and part-time drivers, Foothill Unity Center makes it a point to reach shut-ins, such as homebound seniors and disabled persons, by delivering groceries to their homes once a month. This has proven to be a welcome source of contact for an otherwise isolated population.

Local pet shelters are overflowing because people struggling to survive cannot afford to feed their pets. Our Pet Food Bank helps hundreds of families keep their beloved pets. Our pet food supplies come from generous donations by individuals, stores and businesses throughout the community.
