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.
