The Los Angeles Regional Food Bank will be in Inglewood Friday to give out food to thousands of people struggling to buy groceries amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The event will be held in the Forum parking lot located at 3900 West Manchester Blvd. and takes place between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., according to a news release from the event’s organizers.

Volunteers are expecting as many as 5,000 families to show up Friday in search of groceries.
