Placentia : City to Hold Monthly Surplus Food Giveaway

February 13, 1986

The city will distribute food to its needy on Thursday and Friday in the monthly distribution of surplus government food.

For more than 800 families living at or under the poverty level, the city has distributed dairy products, honey and rice each month for the last six years.

"This is a very good service to the community. There are many people who need this on a continuing basis," said Betty Escobosa, director of human services.

To be eligible, a one-person household must have an annual income of no more than $7,470. A six-person household must have an annual income of no more than $20,520.

The amount of food received by each family is based on the number of people per household.

The food will be distributed Thursday and Friday at the Human Services Office at McFadden Park, 974 Melrose St., from 8:30 a.m. to noon and 1:15 to 4:45 p.m. and Thursday at the Gomez Center, 1701 Atwood Ave., from 9 a.m. to noon and 1 to 5 p.m.
