As part of our effort to provide comprehensive care, we also do what we can to address social needs that impact health. Unfortunately, food insecurity -- the inability to consistently put enough food on the table -- is common among our patients.
That's why Venice Family Clinic hosts free food markets in which we distribute over 10,000 pounds of produce. Through our free food market, community patrons and Clinic patients will be able to take home fresh fruits and vegetables to make delicious and nutritious meals at home.

Founded in 1970 in a borrowed storefront dental office, the Clinic has grown into the largest free clinic in the nation. Founder Phillip Rossman, MD, and co-founder Mayer B. Davidson, MD, called upon friends and colleagues to help. That spirit of volunteerism prevails today with nearly 1,900 volunteers and $10.5 million in-kind contributions from hospitals, laboratories, specialty-care providers and pharmaceutical companies.
Programs and Services
The Clinic provides comprehensive primary health care, mental health services, health education and child development services, as well as public insurance enrollment to more than 21,000 patients, including approximately 5,500 children, who make over 116,000 visits. Prescription medicines are provided at no charge.
Patients, most of whom live and work in the Westside neighborhoods of Venice, Mar Vista, Santa Monica, Culver City, and Inglewood, are low income and lack private health insurance. Sixteen percent of the Clinic's patients are homeless.
