Would you recommend SOVA Community Food & Resource Program?

You are able to get free groceries once a month here. The first time you go be prepared to spend a few hours because they have an intake process. The amount of food that you receive will depend on the number of individuals that are in your home. You will be required to bring some sort of documentation identifying each of the listed "dependents" on the second visit. They also offer Job services, and a few times a month there is a person from the DPSS there to help you apply for food stamps and/or Medi-Cal. I suggest you take a car or go with a friend who has a car, because depending on the size of your family you won't be able to carry what they give you in a few grocery bags. Once you have gone for three consecutive months, you may be given a $50.00 clothes voucher for you and each dependent in your home. You must use this voucher at one of their thrift stores run by the Jewish family Services. YOU MUST ASK FOR THIS VOUCHER!
