Help Grateful Hearts meet the much higher need for food in response to lockdown

Since the lockdown order was put in effect in California on March 19, the food distribution service of Grateful Hearts has worked to meet a much higher need for food:

  • from 4500 meals per month BEFORE to 9000 meals NOW
  • from serving 40 veterans weekly BEFORE to 250 veterans NOW

Because of the huge leap in need, Grateful Hearts needs help filling their food pantry. Here are some suggestions:

  • pick up extra canned goods the next time you shop
  • host a food drive — invite friends, family, neighbors, businesses and service groups to join
  • clean out your kitchen cabinets and donate the unwanted items
  • donate financially to allow Grateful Hearts to shop at Second Harvest Food Bank, where money stretches a lo-o-ong way
  • Canned goods and other non-perishable food items should be dropped off at 5420 Katella Avenue in Los Alamitos (south across from Red Robin) on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.
