News from: Martha’s Village and Kitchen
Martha’s Village and Kitchen will host their monthly USDA Food Distribution event on Wednesday, July 17, 2019 from 8:00am – 10:00am at their campus at 83791 Date Avenue in Indio.
Fresh fruit, vegetables, dairy, meats and other essential items will be distributed to community members in need. This important event is a federal program that helps supplement the diets of low-income individuals and families, including elderly people, by providing them with emergency food assistance at no cost. This event is open to the public.
Each month, Martha’s distributes over 30,000 emergency assistance meals/units of service in accordance with USDA and FDA published guidelines. It is our goal to help with food security and reduce hunger in the Coachella Valley. There is no single face of food insecurity, hunger, and the need for help. The working poor, the elderly on fixed incomes, college students, the impoverished, the disabled, children, families and individuals benefit from this program.
