Torrance Will Begin Delivering Groceries to At-Risk Residents

Beginning tomorrow (3/31), the city of Torrance will begin delivering groceries to certain residents by city employees.

Seniors, those with a disability or those with any underlying health conditions are eligible for the delivery service.

Packages cost $70 and will be limited to one per household per week and will be delivered by a uniformed city official as quickly as they can.

The employee will either ring a resident's doorbell or knock before placing the order down and stepping 6 feet away from the door.

Requests aren't necessarily available and the packages will vary based on what's available at participating grocery stores.

What is likely to be in most packages are:

  • Chicken/turkey (about a 2-pound pack)
  • Beef (steak/ground, about a 2-pound pack)
  • Milk (at least 1/2 gallon, potentially soy, whole or reduced/non-fat)
  • Eggs (at least a dozen)
  • Butter (1 pound)
  • Bread (1 loaf)
  • Boxed pasta, rice or mac and cheese (2)
  • Cereal (1 box)
