Bishop Clarence McClendon partnered with L.A. Councilmember Herb Wesson and the cities of Inglewood and Los Angeles to launch community food distribution program. The kick-off event was held on May 29, at The Place of Grace, 2543 W. Manchester Blvd., In Inglewood.

The immediate goal of the campaign is to provide free food and essential items each Friday to 100 families that have been affected by COVID-19. McClendon said that future plans call for operating a food pantry “Monday thru Friday for anyone that might need assistance.

“We are determined to make a difference in the lives of the people who live in the community in which we serve,” he said. “These areas have been hit hard due to the pandemic and the time has come to break all forms of political, economic and social injustice by directly meeting the needs of the people in a dignified manner.”
