There are going to be four events in the next few weeks, the first is to be held Thursday, March 26 from 2 to 4 p.m. and the LMC Food Pantry is offering fresh produce located at the front Library entrance. 

 Representatives from the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano County are also holding a special event partnered with the LMC Food Pantry Monday, March 30 from 12 to 2 p.m. located in parking Lot A by the Library at the LMC Pittsburg campus.

 Another chance to pick up fresh produce will be Thursday, April 2 from 2 to 4 p.m. and Monday April 6 from 3 to 5 p.m. at the Library entrance.
