The first Saturday of each month, Calvary's Deacons run a food distribution program in Cowan Hall. Virginia Elledge and a team of Deacons pick up groceries and items from the Los Angeles Food Bank and other suppliers. The daunting task of organizing, sorting and preparing over 75 bags for the needy begins. Distribution is at 12 noon, and oftentimes is over before 12:30. Many times, the need is so great, people are lining up as early as 8:00 a.m.
