Food, school supplies and books will be distributed to children from August 13 to 15

Ramona Food & Clothes Closet continues to provide food assistance to those in need and is honored that the Albertsons Companies Foundation Nourishing Neighbors is helping by awarding the RFCC a $5,000 grant to continue helping feed our children.

The funds will help the RFCC distribute lunch bags and snacks to children at the Ramona Post Office at 1444 Main Street on designated dates. RFCC will partner with Stem Studio, which will add school supplies to lunch bags starting Friday, August 13. (See the full schedule below.)
