There are no eligibility restrictions or reservations required; the groceries are available to everyone.
Recipients will stay in their vehicles while the groceries are loaded by workers and are asked to wear facemasks.

The groceries will be provided by the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank. The distribution event will be hosted by Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors Chair Kathryn Barger, the City of Lancaster, the Los Angeles County Library, the Los Angeles County Department of Beaches and Harbors, and the Los Angeles County Department of Parks and Recreation, whose employees will staff the event.
