SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why The Capistrano Dispatch is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.
Food distribution to the needy will begin on Saturday, May 23, at the St. Margaret’s Episcopal School parking lot and will last for six Saturdays in total through June 27.
The San Juan Capistrano Chamber of Commerce announced the distribution in cooperation with local organizations and businesses, including Bad to the Bone BBQ. Distribution will be from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. or until boxes run out.
“Those wishing to receive grocery items are drive-in-only. Only one box/load per car, no exceptions, due to the immense need,” a press release said. “No car may line up for the event prior to 7 a.m. on the day of the event. No walk-ups will be accepted. Windows must be up at all times to keep our volunteers safe. Trunks must be opened when in line.”
Volunteers must sign up before the event, and no walk-up volunteers will be accepted.
