Food Pantry

The Food Pantry is a core expression of Immanuel Presbyterian Church’s relationship and support of the larger community. We welcome our neighbors who experience hunger and food insecurity. Currently, we are open Monday-Friday 8 am-12 pm and Saturday 8 am -10:30 am. We are serving over 21,500 people in our community per month.

We welcome donations of non-perishable food items, as well as financial contributions. By collecting offerings of food, we express both our understanding for the consistent need for food to survive and our solidarity with those who are hungry.

What we offer:

Grocery Program – The Grocery Program offers food that needs to be cooked (such as rice, pasta, or beans). We offer the food items to our guests. The program is a way of recognizing and extending dignity, acknowledging the humanity and recognizing preferences of each person.

There is a great sense of community and diversity among all who gather, including volunteers and Food Pantry guests alike.

Our Food Pantry Partners

Immanuel Presbyterian Church’s Food Pantry partners with two key partners; DreamCenterLA and Los Angeles Regional Food Bank. A portion of our food comes from the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank, and is delivered by the Hope Net truck driver. Another amazing partner is DreamCenterLA who provides the other major part of our food. We are always open to and grateful for donations of food or clothing, whether from individuals or groups doing food drives.
