Irvine, Calif. – South County Outreach is announcing that they are now open at their new location, 7 Whatney, Suite B, Irvine, Ca 92618. Their hours of operation are Monday through Friday, 9 am to 3:30 pm, in which they focus on serving families in need from South Orange County. Furthermore, South County Outreach now offers a “Client Choice” shopping model throughout the entire day. The “Client Choice” shopping model is a program where people are allowed to go through the food pantry with a dedicated South County Outreach volunteer and choose which food they know their families will and are able to eat.
Renee Stevenson, Director of Operations, is really excited to be offering the “Client Choice” shopping model full-time for South County Outreach Clients. “One of our main goals at South County Outreach is to make sure all of our clients are treated with dignity and respect when they come through our doors to receive services.” Ms. Stevenson went on to add, “The ‘Client Choice’ shopping model achieves this goal, by offering the client a similar experience to that of a local market, they are empowered to get the best foods for their families.”
Second Harvest’s Mobile Pantry will be stopping by South County Outreach on Friday, May 9, 9:00 am - 11:00 am to hand out free groceries and produce with no registration required. South County Outreach would like to remind all who are interested in this opportunity to bring their own bags and carts. Carpooling is encouraged as parking will be limited. South County Outreach’s food pantry will be open alongside Second Harvest’s Mobile Pantry. Therefore, to receive additional food from South County Outreach, the normal registration process will be required. But there will be no registration required for the Mobile Pantry.
