Clementine the Trolley visits WIC!

Our second Clementine Mobile Food Pantry event of 2020 was a success! Hosted by our own Santa Ana East WIC on Wednesday, June 24 the trolley provided free boxes of food and other essentials to over 70 WIC families.

Clementine is a colorful mobile food pantry that serves Orange County through Community Action Partnership Orange County and The OC Food Bank. The trolley is normally stocked like a supermarket with many essential items such as fruits, vegetables, diapers, soaps, and more. Special modifications have been made during the COVID-19 pandemic to follow social distancing protocols.

The Clementine Trolley will be back in a couple months! PHFE WIC participants can send a text to 91997 and ask to sign up for the next Clementine event.

Black lives matter.

We at PHFE WIC acknowledge the pain and suffering that anti-Black racism continues to cause.

We speak out against racism in all of its forms.

We speak out against oppression.

We speak out against the recent killings of unarmed Black people.

And we commit to working together with our communities to actively change the institutional and structural systems that have allowed racism to persist.

As Kareem Abdul-Jabbar wrote so poignantly:
“Racism in America is like dust in the air. It seems invisible – even if you are choking on it – until you let the sun in. Then you see it’s everywhere. As long as we keep shining that light, we have a chance of cleaning it wherever it lands. But we have to stay vigilant, because it is always still in the air” (Los Angeles Times, Saturday May 30, 2020)

Together we will keep shining the light.

Together we will stay vigilant.

And together we will stand in solidarity with those who pursue equity, justice, human dignity for all, and an end to racism.
