Help Me Help You food pantry opened its 11th grocery distribution location at Mckinley Elementary on September 22. 

The food pantry distributed free nutritious groceries, school supplies, sweets, and enrollment assistance for community services during the event. Such resources are vital for students to have everything they need. 

Having access to healthy homes provides the best learning environment for the students as they are not worried about where their next meal will come from. 

Nearly 91.6% of the students receive free lunch assistance from McKinley Elementary School. The main purpose of the Grocery Grab N Go is to address the issue of food insecurity which is leading to development challenges, health issues, emotional struggles, and poor educational outcomes. 

The pantry helps thousands of families to meet their needs amidst the rising costs of food. The grocery provided also eases the financial burden on the families. 

The 9th District Long Beach Grocery Grab N’ Go will be operational on the second and fourth Friday of each month, located at McKinley Elementary.
