We have great news for our Laguna Food Pantry visitors. Steve, the new manager of Crystal Cove’s Trader Joe’s, has invited us to pick up produce, meats, bread and flowers seven days a week. And over in Laguna Hills, Laura and Jeff received permission from Don, Fresh and Easy’s manager, to fill their car with fruits and vegetables each week for us. Finally, Ken, on his commute to Newport Beach, brings us boxes and boxes of citrus from his organic farm in Fallbrook.
These wonderful deliveries complement the faithful, daily food donations from Whole Foods Laguna Beach, Whole Foods Fashion Island and Pavilions North Laguna, as well as Saturday’s produce from our own farmer’s market. We are so grateful to these partners who help us provide for our neighbors.
If you or anyone you know needs a little help, we provide free weekly groceries Monday through Friday from 7:30 to 10 a.m. Our address is 20652 Laguna Canyon Rd., just north of the dog park. We’ll keep the lights on for you.
