Community Identifies Need
The Montbello Organizing Committee (MOC) received reports of many neighbors losing jobs during the pandemic. Parents trying to help their children with new remote learning protocols were also facing the prospect of having no money to pay rent or buy food.
MOC is committed to empowering community voice through economic development, healthy food access and equitable education for all students.
This video reflects some of the MOC efforts during the COVID 19 pandemic: food access for students and their families in the neighborhood. Twice a month, MOC hosts a massive distribution of free food to the community.
