Pasadena, CA – Bishop Christopher E. Milton of Holy Assembly Church of God in Christ, Martin Gordon, President of Pasadena Community Coalition, and Sheryl Turner, President of Friends of the Miracle Mile today announced their collaboration to distribute food to the community, Saturday, November 15, 2020, beginning at 10:00 am at the church, 55 East Villa Street, Pasadena, CA 91103.

“We are blessed to be able to provide this high-quality, fresh food for distribution to families in need during this COVID-19 pandemic,” said Bishop Milton who secured the USDA Farmers-to-Families program. “This will be our second month of giving this critical support to families in the area who are challenged to provide nutritious meals for their children.”
“This is a socially-distanced, no contact, drive-through event,” said Martin Gordon of the Pasadena Community Coalition. “We want to make sure everyone stays safe and we’ll be providing Black Lives Matter masks to the first 100 people who visit the church location.”
Previous food boxes have included fruit, vegetables, protein, and dairy products.
Friends of the Miracle Mile, Pasadena Community Coalition and Holy Assembly Church of God in Christ have a long-standing collaborative relationship in providing services to the community. Past efforts have included events such as National Night Out, community outreach with local politicians, educational programs and internships for youths, and hosting a reception for Ambassador Andrew Young during Black Heritage Month in 2018.
