Our reporting is free for everyone, but it’s not free to make.
LAist only exists with reader support. If you're in a position to give, your donation powers our reporters and keeps us independent.

Know of an organization hosting a drive-thru pantry or other meal distribution event in L.A. soon?

We want to know about it — we're compiling a list of all the pop-up food distributions we know of around the county for people in need, and keeping it updated as frequently as we can. If you know of something we should add to the list, share it with us at

We also have a longer, more comprehensive list of where to find financial assistance, food and other help during the coronavirus emergency — you can find that here.
