San Diego and Imperial Counties Labor Council Launches Food Assistance Program
We are in an unforeseen crisis. Just a few weeks ago none of us could have predicted the economic impact created by the COVID19 outbreak. Our members and our neighbors are in a financial and food crisis. Our entire labor council operation has converted to an emergency team focused on securing member benefits, and running a substantial food distribution operation. To date we’ve distributed over 150,000 pounds of food and served over 5,000 families in need. In the coming days our distribution will provide food to over 2,000 families per week, as our operations continually expand. I wish to commend our staff team for the work they are doing to keep this operation running, in the face of the health crisis swirling around them.
