The COVID-19 pandemic has profoundly impacted each of our lives. Now more than ever, L.A. Care’s first priority has remained the health of its members.

From hosting drive-thru food pantries at our Community Resource Centers and offering virtual workout classes, to providing immediate updates and links to vital resources through our digital and social media campaigns, L.A. Care went the extra mile last year.

TACKLING FOOD INSECURITY

We've hosted local food drives, providing basic supplies and additional resources.

FIGHTING THE FLU

In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, we wanted to make sure members had access to the still important flu vaccine.


"Over the past year, the pandemic’s economic fallout has not only aggravated low-income communities, but it has impacted new segments of the population who find themselves going to a food pantry for the first time ever.

As we start a slow recovery from COVID-19, we will do everything we can to help our fellow neighbors get back on their feet, including help with putting food on the table."

 — JOHN BAACKES, L.A. CARE CEO
