Where can I go to get food in the short term? I lost my job last month and haven't found anything else yet. I applied for food stamps, but I was wondering if there is any place I can go as well (someplace where they speak English would be a bonus). I'm almost out of food.

I live in Anaheim. Thanks!

Friendly Center In Orange might help you. I do not know whether they have limitations on who they will help, but they have food.

It's been a while since I was there but I know St. Boniface Catholic Church in Anaheim used to have a very active food program. Friendly and English speaking. It was a small building in the West parking lot. Lincoln and Harbor. Call to ask if they still have it. The office personnel are very friendly and helpul. If they can't help you they'll probably know who can.

Hello Dank. I distribute food on Thursdays fm 0900-1100 every Thursday at Zion Lutheran Church here in Anaheim. We are located at 222 N. East Street. Call before coming. Our number is 714 535 1169. A call is required to be on the list of recipients each week. Walk ins are welcome, but will be serviced after the 'reservations' are serviced.
When you call, pls specify how many ppl in your fam, especially the kid count. I try to throw a box of cookies in for the kids.
God Bless you, brother. I'll put you and yours on my prayer list.

I heard there are food banks that in addition to giving out food have boxes of higher quality food available for sale. The last I heard is you could get a $100 (or more) box of food for $20 and they took food stamps. Maybe someone here will know more about it.

I'd rather go dumpster diving than put up with your typical soup kitchen.
