Help LBCT feed our community and save lives during this crisis! #GivingTuesday
Every week since 2018, Long Beach Community Table has been feeding our hungry neighbors throughout the city and surrounding areas. Since the government issued its Safe At Home orders, food requests have doubled, from 1000 per week in March to nearly 2000 at this writing...and continue to increase on a daily basis. Many of these requests come from quarantined seniors, immune-compromised individuals, and people with disabilities who are unable to shop for themselves due to the coronavirus restrictions, and require door-to-door delivery.
As you can imagine, this has pushed us far beyond our usual capacity. Thank goodness for all of our existing and NEW volunteers who are coming out of the woodwork! However, at a time when groceries are harder to find for everyone, we are in great need of ongoing donations or low-cost, wholesale purchase of nutritious food, including produce, meat, dairy, eggs, and more, in addition to our regular suppliers.
Your gift will help provide immediate financial support so we can acquire essential food, hygiene essentials, etc. Help LBCT expand so we can continue serving those in our community who are in need!
