Food Bank Open Today in La Verne, CA. - Sowing Seeds For Life

The food bank will be open today from 1:00 pm until 5:00 pm with many changes to be put into place this afternoon. As the need for food has increased, so has the traffic, which is causing problems for the neighboring businesses.

Unfortunately the La Verne Police Department has had to come out three times over the last two months to control the traffic that backs up onto Arrow Highway.

The volunteers are gathering at 8:00 am to pre-box and bag food to keep the crowd moving as quickly as possible, as many of our clients are handicapped or elderly.

A third security guard will be employed to keep our visitors from clogging the parking lots of the businesses next door to us, which impacts their customer flow.

The La Verne Police Department has been extremely helpful, and only requests we keep the streets clear outside of our parking lot.

As a volunteer for Sowing Seeds For Life but ten months I have watched as the crowds of hungry American's has continually gown each time we have our food pantry.

Let's hope for the best today and see how our brainstorming plays out?

  1. Address: 1350 Arrow Hwy, La Verne, CA 91750
