Since the first year of the Pandemic, Love Riverside began to help out by collecting food and distributing it to families in need. We also began to partner with our local neighborhood Food Pantries that are providing distributions weekly (thank you!) by providing food and support to them as they serve our community.
It has become increasingly known that our
Seniors are experiencing increased Food Insecurity
in our nation and the City of Riverside has stepped up to help them in this season of need. In the Fall of 2022, Love Riverside entered into a new partnership with the City of Riverside (CDBG funded) that is bringing additional food/produce to our Seniors living in Senior Apartments in our city. We are honored to be assisting our Seniors at this time and letting them know we, as a city, care for them in practical ways by bringing additional food to them monthly. Presently, we are serving 19 different Apartment complexes each month. We distribute food to them on Tues, Wed and Thurs.
