Information

L.A. County Service Provider Area: 2

The pantry provides a 5 day supply of free groceries and personal hygiene products (when needed) for each family member. Within each JFS/SOVA food pantry facility there is also a Resource Center. The Resource Center’s staff provide information and referrals to other community services and help people find solutions to other challenges (e.g., shelter, health care, employment, legal advocacy, job counseling, food stamp enrollment, etc).

New clients are advised to arrive by the time the pantry first opens in the morning in order to register as a new participant and receive the complete program orientation. They request official photo identification of first-time participants as well as identification for all additional dependent family members showing that all are living at the same address. We also require proof of residence within their service area.

You may visit the SOVA pantry once in each calendar month and receive groceries for all eligible household members. Grocery orders are sized according to the number of household members. If you are homeless and do not have refrigeration and/or cooking facilities, you may visit twice each month.
