The City of Gardena will no longer allow you to line up before our food distribution. The long line is a safety hazard. It blocks access to homes and driveways. You are NOT allowed to double park while waiting in line.

We are sorry for this traffic inconvenience and we are working with the City of Gardena for the safety of everyone.

You are being provided a ticket with time to return to the Foodbank to pick up your food. Please return during this time.

For any comments or concerns, please provide your input to Gardena City Council meeting:

January 23 at 7:00 PM at Council Chamber

City Hall 1700 West 162nd Street, Gardena, California (ORAL COMMUNICATIONS)

or you can contact the Gardena Police Department, Community Affairs Coordinator at 310-217-9689.

We will be providing future updates on Mama Rosa’s food pantry website's Updated Report page at

Thank you very much and we look forward to seeing you in the future.
