Emergency Food Asst. Program (EFAP)/Commodities

Commodities food distribution program at this site has been suspended until further notice.

Food Bank


The Commodities program is open to people of all ages that are in need of food. The food is supplied by the Food Bank of Southern California and the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). The Foodbank obtains and distributes donations of highly nutritious food that the City of Lawndale picks up from the warehouse, packs, and distributes weekly. The food received each week varies and sometimes consists of canned goods, frozen, and/or fresh produce.
