La Sierra University Students Support La Sierra Food Pantry +


For the past six months, La Sierra University biomedical science majors Meagan Lopez and Shannon Grewal have been helping about 600 Riverside families a week receive the food they need by volunteering with the La Sierra Food Pantry, a ministry of the La Sierra University Church. They didn’t anticipate the impact they themselves would experience. The students packed boxes of food and provided them to community members who drove up in their vehicles to the students’ distribution table in the church parking lot. Each box feeds about four people and is filled with canned goods, pasta, milk, bread and fresh produce. Noted Meagan, “To be a small part of bringing comfort in such an uncertain time has truly been a blessing.” Shannon, who was baptized last spring, said, “Community outreach has been something that has allowed me to develop a stronger connection with God. I think this opportunity has not only allowed me to change the lives of others, but also my own.”
