Spreading the Good Work of the St. Agnes Parish Food Pantry

Spreading the Good Work of the St. Agnes Parish Food Pantry

The St. Agnes Parish food pantry has become a lifeline for many individuals and families in need in South Los Angeles.

Access to nutritious food is an essential part of our lives, yet many individuals and families find themselves in need of food assistance due to various circumstances. Seeking food assistance is crucial for these individuals and families as it provides them with the necessary nourishment to lead healthy lives. Fortunately, the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank and its Partner Agency Network serve those individuals and their families looking for food assistance throughout LA County.

Making ends meet in our County has gotten more difficult for low to middle-income families. Partner agencies like St. Agnes Parish in South Los Angeles have been helping families alleviate the burden of choosing between buying food or meeting other essential needs. Because of the great work this, and other partner agencies, make in our community, food recipients aren’t shy to spread the word to other individuals in need.

Spreading the Word of a Helpful Food Pantry

Luz Garcia is a retired community advocate. As she makes her way to the St. Agnes Parish food distribution every Tuesday, she sometimes meets individuals or families that seem to be in need of food or other services. She takes the time to stop and talk to them, hear their needs, and direct them to the right place for them to get the help they need. 

Oftentimes, Garcia lets them know that she’s on her way to get food assistance at St. Agnes, and they join her at the food pantry. 

“Religion doesn’t matter,” Garcia said. “They give everyone food here. All they ask is for your address and ID.”

Like some of the people Garcia meets, she too is in need of food assistance. Despite being retired and knowing where to get assistance when she needs it, buying groceries at the supermarket has become a burden for her and many of our neighbors in need. 

“Everything is expensive right now,” she said. “You go buy a can of vegetables and the price has now doubled. What used to cost 99 cents, is now more than $2.”

Seeking food assistance is essential for individuals and families in need. It not only addresses immediate hunger but also contributes to their overall health and well-being. By accessing these resources, individuals and families can regain stability, improve their quality of life, and work towards a brighter future. 

If you are in a position to do so, please consider donating to the Food Bank and supporting our neighbors in need.
