CCNP places an emphasis on ensuring Equal Access to Essential Need Services, through initiatives that directly impact the lives of the communities served. Ensuring that communities have access to food, health, transportation, education, and housing are at the forefront of this program.
Since 2016, the CCNP Food Security Program has worked diligently to provide fresh and nutritious food to households experiencing food insecurity through weekly grocery distribution, hot meal distribution to school-age children four times per week, and most recently, through grocery distribution at pop-up locations throughout the City of Los Angeles, Council District 1. The program includes direct linkage and navigation assistance to federal, state, and local programs including but not limited to SNAP (CalFresh), WIC, P-EBT, and other programs that can benefit the households served. The program is open to anyone experiencing food insecurity within the City or County of Los Angeles and in partnership with the Los Angeles Food Bank, the Office of Councilmember Gil Cedillo, and other partners.
CCNP distributes diapers to families who are struggling to purchase diapers for their children. For many families, limited income often impacts the number of diapers a family is able to purchase and children may be changed less frequently. To ensure the health and well-being of the children we serve, CCNP distributes diapers monthly or as needed when resources are available. Diaper distribution is every 3rd Tuesday of the month. Registration is required.
