October marks seven months since the shelter-in-place orders began in San Mateo County. As our community continues to struggle with food insecurity, we continue to host weekly food distribution events at both the Dore San Mateo clubhouse and DeLue Daly City clubhouse. Since March, we have partnered with Second Harvest, the USDA, and other local organizations to provide 1,200 grocery packs and over 2,800 snacks. In addition, we distribute fresh herbs and vegetables from our community garden at the Dore location. Recently, generous donors gave hot meals to our community at the Dore food distribution.
If community members need food please come to DeLue at 4:00 PM on Thursdays, or Dore at 11:00 AM on Fridays. If you would like to donate food or volunteer please visit www.midpenbgc.org/fooddrive.
