Riverside County launches map of local food resources
In response to an increasing number of requests for resources, Riverside County has released
an online map to connect residents to food resources. Food Access gives directions to local
senior meal sites, school district meal sites and food pantries within a 10-mile radius. The map
also includes relevant details such as hours of operation, contact information and special
As COVID-19 continues to cause uncertainty in the job market, many local organizations have
introduced temporary food pantries. Riverside County employees keep in contact with local food
providers to ensure the map’s accuracy. New food providers can email
EOCMassCare@rivco.org to be included on the map.
“Thank you to all the organizations that are making sure there is a safety net and our residents
have food to eat. Resources such as this virtual map are important so people are aware of
services that are available and are able to access them,” stated Riverside County Board Chair
and Fourth District Supervisor V. Manuel Perez.
Food Access supports food pantry operators, who have received fewer donations at a time
when they are also seeing double or triple the number of individuals and families in need.
Community members who want to donate food or funds can use the website to locate their
nearest food pantry.
Food Access is available on www.rivcoph.org/coronavirus and on the RivCoMobile app
(available on iOS and Android).
