County Commissioners William McCurdy II and Tick Segerblom are joining with Las Vegas City Councilwoman Olivia Diaz and the Culinary Academy of Las Vegas to distribute free food to those in need this month.
The food will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis at the following dates and locations:
- Feb. 9, from 8 to 11 a.m. at Desert Pines high School, 3800 E. Harris Avenue,
- Feb. 13, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Monaco Middle School, 1870 N. Lamont St.,
- Feb. 16, from 8 to 11 a.m. at Rancho high School, 1900 Searles Avenue, and
- Feb. 23, from 8 to 11 a.m. at O’Callaghan Middle School, 1450 Radwick Drive.
“Too many of our friends and neighbors are struggling with the financial impacts of the ongoing pandemic,” Commissioner McCurdy said. “Through the Community Food Assistance Program we are helping families in crisis by putting food on the table and allowing them to focus their limited resources on other necessities.”
“The pandemic has made it even more difficult for many families in our community to make ends meet,” Commissioner Segerblom said. “By coming together, we can help make sure their cupboards are full and their children don’t go to bed hungry.”
Each household will be given 40 pounds of fresh food at the sites, which will all be drive-throughs.
