NDICA supports underserved communities in Los Angeles

It is imperative... to help distribute food to those who need it most.

The National Diversity Inclusion and Cannabis Alliance (NDICA) announced today its participation in a comprehensive food services program in partnership with the USDA. NDICA will distribute food boxes at its main campus, 6065 S. Western Avenue, Los Angeles, CA, 90047 every Tuesday from 2-6pm.

“While our mission is to support social equity and social justice in the cannabis industry, you cannot have a viable employment program if basic needs go unmet,” said Bonita Money, executive director and founder of NDICA. “As a non-profit located in one of the most underserved areas of Los Angeles county, it is imperative that we use all the resources available to us to help distribute food to those who need it most during these difficult times,” she added.

NDICA has been distributing food for more than seven months. Its partnership with the USDA is a way to expand the food service program to reach even more individuals in the community.

The USDA initiative is intended to bring food to families through innovative, regional distributors so fresh food can get to as many people as possible, especially in hard to reach places. The USDA is partnering with food banks, non-profits and faith-based communities to help distribute good. The Farmers to Families food box initiative has already delivered more than 5 million boxes of food to those in need across the country.

NDICA is on track to distribute 10-20K pounds of food per week. Food boxes include meat, eggs, rice, pasta, vegetables, fruits, bread, other dairy products and juices. Vegan options are also available. No registration or application is needed.
