Community Programs

HUNGER CENTER

Our Hunger Center program is comprised of a choice model food pantry, a community meal, and a monthly Mobile Pantry. Through the Food Pantry, neighbors can visit once a month to select 3-5 days’ worth of groceries such as pantry staples, fresh bread, fresh produce, and various perishable and non-perishable items. Every Tuesday evening, community residents can join us for a free, hot community meal.  During the school year, youth in the neighborhood are provided with a bag of groceries every Friday through the Backpack Program. We also supply seniors in the area with an average of 30 meals a week and specially deliver it to them at the Alexia and Lourexis Apartments.

MAGIC JOHNSON COMMUNITY EMPOWERMENT CENTER (MJCEC)

The Magic Johnson Community Empowerment Center (MJCEC) provides access to resources and programming that educate, empower and strengthen individuals though the innovative use of technology. The MJCEC regularly hosts classes aimed at helping community members of all ages to learn about the various uses of technology and find ways to use technology to improve their lives personally, academically and professionally. In addition to holding classes on-site, classes and tech support were provided at four local senior high-rise apartments so residents could learn how to better utilize technology in their everyday life.
