Our most significant task is providing nutritional goods for the elderly. Presently, the number of families benefiting from this program within the Los Angeles area exceeds 10000. The food is acquired from USDA, and distributed to various locations. Food is also given to the homeless, who would otherwise have no means of attaining nutrition. This process of distribution is carried out by volunteers on a monthly basis. The program thus serves in aiding people in need, such as the elderly and the homeless, to receive the nutritional requirements necessary for a proper and healthy life.
California Community Care serves hundreds of certified organizations daily throughout California. Food is distributed to abused children and women shelters, crisis centers, childcare centers, adult care centers, senior centers, homes for troubled youth, homeless shelters, substance abuse centers, emergency box programs.
