Local residents in need of food assistance are encouraged to go to Craig Ranch Park in North Las Vegas tomorrow (Friday, April 23) for the next Community Food Assistance Pop-Up event.
Commissioner William McCurdy II in partnership with the Culinary Academy Las Vegas and the City of North Las Vegas will be giving away 2,000 baskets containing 30-40 pounds of food to residents on a first-come, first-served basis.
The event will open to residents at 8 a.m. and continue until 1 p.m. or earlier if all the food is given away. The park is at 628 W. Craig Road.
“These are stressful times for all of us, but even more so for those families struggling to put food on the table,” Commissioner McCurdy said. “By working together, we can help make sure no family or child goes hungry in Clark County.”
Residents who need immediate or regular food assistance, and those who may need home delivery, should call (702) 227-8842 between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. weekdays to inquire about additional assistance.
