When the going gets tough — the labor movement always jumps into action.
On Friday, March 27th from 10AM to 2PM the County Federation of Labor will be hosting a massive food distribution at the IBEW Training Center in Commerce.
Working families are struggling during this unprecedented crisis, and we know that many workers are in dire need of basic resources including groceries. If you need food, or know somebody that direly needs it, please send them over.
There’s a drive-thru system to ensure the safety of every person at the food distribution event.
Together we will rise.

I don’t have a car, can I still come to pick up the food
it’s drive thru only, to avoid person to person contact.
It’s drive thru only.
Is it only for union members only?
Hello can we carpool
You’re probably better off driving yourself there for social distancing. It will be drive thru only — and you need to RSVP
Unless that person lives in your household, it’s not wise. We need to keep social distancing.

I attempted to RSVP…unable
Unfortunately..we have to work..during those hours….can you come to us or schedule later hours?
we will relay the message — seiu 721 didn’t plan this. The event got shut down.
Why the line is not moving if it’s a drive through to pick up food we’re on Slauson and Alexander st
there’s a lot of need — a lot of cars created traffic. It’s volunteer driven. They’re doing the best they can.
Omg the lines are insane !! Seems like hours waiting ! Had to leave and head back to work.
We just went and the line was down several blocks, the line wasn’t even moving and i thought the event started at 10? We had to leave and go back to work
Would this be on county time or do we submit for or time m
Why is the line so long…..
it just got shut down by Sheriff Department.
How long is it?
It’s this on our time or county time?
I am here on line to pick up, I have a reservation #, however, people out here are saying that the event is closed.
Is that correct?
we are getting reports that it was shut down.
Then why are they not telling us not to be waiting here in line. There is people with vest walking around.
Shouldn’t they be notifying everyone in the line?
It’s volunteer driven. There’s a lot of need — the amount of cars created traffic throughout the area. They’re doing the best they can.
There is people with neon green vest walking around the line of cars.
Shouldn’t they be notifying us, so that we are not out here just waiting?
It’s volunteer driven. They’re doing the best they can.
Can I come without rsvp ticket?
This has to have been the most unorganized event ever. People were cutting the lines, workers didnt know any information and there was law enforcement that was announcing the food bank was closed at 1050am. I’m highly upset that I was in line at 830am and was not able to receive any can goods. I hope we can do better next time.
It’s volunteer driven. There’s a lot of need —the amount of cars created traffic throughout the area.
So what does that mean about the people who the sheriff’s told the food bank was closed. We came to sit in line for 2 hours & was dismissed. While those who were behind us were able to get food. Maybe if communication with law enforcement was fluid, everything could have been fair. Where can we volunteer, so I can ensure that this injustice wont repeat.
If you were in line you would’ve received a box of food. I got to the line at 10:30 and it moved inches until about 12:08pm. The Sherriff’s asked the event to stop until they figured out how to redirect traffic, what line to use and close down a section of the Garfield Ave. Once they started the assembly line, it went smooth. I was out within 20 min. Thank you to all the volunteers for being out in this weather and dealing with impatient people.
should just waked up like me honey. i was in at 10;05 and done at 10;20
Any union? Or just your union?
Is every ticket counted for. If you have ticket for food drive are you guarantee a box?
Does food drive stop right at 2:00pm. Some of us are working today..
Thank you for what you are doing. God bless you!
Will this be for today only, or will there be other times?
This was volunteer driven — we will let members know if there’s another one.
