Map to Food Resources in Riverside County

Map to Food Resources in Riverside County

S.E. Williams | Contributor

Riverside, CA – In response to the growing need for support in the county, officials have launched a map of local food resources to connect residents in need to locations nearest them.

The Food Access program tool provides directions to local senior meal sites, school district meal sites and food pantries within a 10-mile radius.

The Food Access tool not only provides location information, it includes additional pertinent details including hours of operation, contact information and special populations served.

As the local region continues to navigate through this unprecedented COVID-19 crisis which has displaced workers and produced immeasurable stress for families in the inland region, many local organizations have introduced temporary food pantries.

To help ensure the online tool is kept current and accurate, Riverside County employees keep in contact with local food providers. County officials encourage food providers to email their distribution information to EOCMassCare@rivco.org to be included on the map.

In expressing the county’s appreciation for all of those participating in this effort, Riverside County Board Chair and Fourth District Supervisor V. Manuel Perez stated, “Thank you to all the organizations that are making sure there is a safety net and our residents have food to eat. Resources such as this virtual map are important, so people are aware of services that are available and are able to access them.”

The online map  is available here or by logging onto https://www.rivcoph.org/coronavirus and clicking on the Food Access button on the right hand side of the page.
