|The food distribution program is a service available for qualifying low-income students and families of Pasadena. Currently the program serves about 450 households in the Pasadena area. |
Fuller Theological Seminary is a registered distribution agency with the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank and a member of the USDA funded Emergency Food Assistance Program (EFAP).
Through a partnership with the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank and other local organizations, Fuller Theological Seminary offers a wide variety of grocery items free of charge to qualifying low-income students and families of Pasadena.
The Food Distribution Program is open every Wednesday from 12:00 am to 3:00 pm. No application is required for participation. One must simply sign a form stating that their income does not exceed the posted maximum income guidelines at the time groceries are received. Only one member per household may come to pick up grocery items each time.
Typical grocery items include: canned goods, beans, rice, fresh produce, snacks, frozen meats, and baking goods.
Location: 135 N. Oakland Ave Pasadena, CA 91182 (In the parking lot behind Taylor Hall)
A financial gift in any amount with help provide food to families in need. $2 will provide nearly a week's supply of groceries to a family of four. Make checks payable to Fuller Theological Seminary and designate Food Distribution Program in the memo.
