Inner City Education Foundation (ICEF) Public Schools now offer free meals to children seven-days-a-week.
ICEF, which operates seven campuses in South L.A. and Inglewood, already provided breakfast and lunch to youth during the week and on April 24, the service expanded to include Grab & Go meals distributed on Saturday and Sunday.
“Our meal service has expanded significantly and we are now serving 100 times more meals than we did on our very first day,” said ICEF CEO Parker Hudnut. “ICEF will continue feeding our community throughout the pandemic.”
The meals can be picked up daily from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., at the ICEF Home Office, 3855 W. Slauson Ave., in Los Angeles. The meals are available to all young people, age 18-years-or-younger, regardless of the child’s residential address or the school attended.
Hudnut, who noted that ICEF served nearly 6,000 meals last Friday, added that “the team looks forward to continuing its commitment to supporting the community during these challenging times.”
ICEF educates more than 2,500 students in grades TK through 12. The management organization, one of the first charter school operations in Los Angeles, has developed a statewide reputation for elevating the competitive achievement levels of African American students.
