Food Bank

Updated information during COVID-19 social distancing period:

El Centro de la Raza’s Food Bank is open to all. In an attempt to ensure that we have enough food for everyone, we impose a limit on the number of weekly visits: once per week for regular distributions, and once per week for “commodities” distributions.
