Loma Linda University Health Beaumont-Banning, in collaboration with Side by Side Humanitarian and San Gorgonio Memorial Hospital, held its annual food drive on Friday, Dec. 15.

Over 100 volunteers — from Loma Linda University Medical Center, Loma Linda University Health Beaumont-Banning, San Gorgonio Memorial Hospital and community leaders — helped set up, distribute food and assist patrons. Nearly 400 families from Cherry Valley, Beaumont and Banning received canned goods and groceries.

Side by Side Humanitarian Founder, Kevin Bowers, works closely with local school districts, churches and government agencies to locate families in need who would benefit from the event.
