Drop off food at City Hall to benefit the less fortunate

With a new year underway, now is the time to consider giving back to the less fortunate in our community. You can do so by dropping off canned or non-perishable food items at Aliso Viejo City Hall, which serves as a drop-point for South County Outreach.

A food barrel is conveniently located near the entrance to City Hall at 12 Journey. Most-needed canned and non-perishable items include peanut butter; jelly; soup; cereal; juice; canned fruit; macaroni & cheese; pasta and pasta sauce; rice; tuna; and canned beans and vegetables. The items are picked up weekly and dispensed to many families in need across the area.

South County Outreach is a nonprofit organization that provides food, homeless prevention counseling, housing, clothing, computer training and rental and utility assistance to those in need. South County Outreach struggles to provide emergency non-perishable and fresh food to an average of 50 families each day. You can make a difference and give back by donating food, money and/or time to the organization.
