The communities of South Los Angeles are in crisis. The majority of clients using our services are from households that are considered food insecure, (lacking access to enough food for an active, healthy life for all of its household members). Also, because for the dis-proportionate cases of diabetes and obesity, there is a considerable need for quality produce and healthier food choices.
FREE FOOD/EMERGENCY FOOD DISTRIBUTION TUESDAYS
Every Tuesday FICM serves a minimum of 60 families per week with an average household ranging from 4-6 persons. The majority of our food is donated from local supermarkets and food banks.
SATURDAY MORNING COMMUNITY BREAKFAST FICM has been serving Saturday morning breakfasts in South Los Angeles since 1989. Serving a healthy meal to the homeless, those coming from sober living homes, and anyone in the community who wishes to join us. This allows FICM and its volunteers to connect with the community in need.
