"With fewer students on campus to feed and more people facing food insecurity, UCLA has called on the skills of its dining staff to help serve the community by preparing nearly 13,000 nutritious meals per week for Venice Family Clinic to distribute for free to its patients in need."

"The partnership provides four nutritious meals per week to each family member or individual, and each meal consists of about a pound of healthy food."

Venice Family Clinic's Simms/Mann Health and Wellness Center is at 2509 Pico Blvd, Santa Monica, CA 90405. The food distribution begins at 8 a.m. Tuesday.
