Friendly Center is a non-profit in Orange County that helps keep children and their families safe, stable, and secure. We work alongside families to prevent homelessness and help future generations on a path to success. Programs like after-school tutoring, food distributions, family counseling, emergency services, and domestic violence intervention are changing lives every day. Friendly Center’s vision is to end the cycle of generational poverty in Orange County.
Friendly Center food distributions fight food insecurity by directly connecting families in need with food. Large pallets of fresh food provided by our partner arrive at the site 30 minutes before the distribution event, this food has often been donated by supermarkets and other companies that have a surplus of goods. By providing a consistent and direct resource for free, fresh foods we’re keeping food on more tables and reducing hunger. To volunteer, click here.
