On Thursday, November 17, 2016, the City of Garden Grove’s Neighborhood Improvement Committee (NIC) hosted a free mobile food pantry and community outreach event to the Palma Vista and El Dorado neighborhoods.

Both neighborhoods received food from the Orange County Food Bank that included apples, granola bars, chips, pasta, and more. Participants also had access to a variety of community resources, opportunities for interaction with the Garden Grove Police and Fire Departments, and a chance to provide their opinions regarding efforts to make their neighborhoods better places to live in. The neighborhoods and committee will meet in January to discuss the results from the opinion survey.

The Neighborhood Improvement Committee is committed to developing strategies to address the physical improvement and social concerns of neighborhoods.
