Park District On South Coasts Adds Unusual Role; Helping To Feed Hungry During Pandemic

A park district is the latest agency on the Central and South Coasts helping to feed those in need during the coronavirus crisis.  The Pleasant Valley Recreation and Park District is now doing a weekly food giveaway.

The Pleasant Valley Senior Center has been doing food distribution for years to help seniors, but the park district widened the scope of the aid.

The driveup distribution takes place at 10 a.m. Fridays outside of the Senior Center on Burnley Street in Camarillo.  There’s no pre-registration or paperwork, with anyone in need eligible.

People are given about 50 pounds of groceries and produce.  It’s first come, first served until the food is gone.  It’s donated by Food Share of Ventura County, the Grocery Outlet store in Camarillo, and the Berry Man produce company.
