Love Riverside is all about loving and serving our neighbors and creating stronger communities throughout the year. We serve our neighborhoods through various types of neighborhood projects on our annual Love Riverside Serve Weekend (always the second weekend in October). We also love to partner with the ongoing efforts of the Neighborhood Engagement Team (City of Riverside), Riverside Neighborhood Partnership and National Night Out.

Thank you for being a great neighbor in Riverside!
Since the first year of the Pandemic, Love Riverside began to help out by collecting food and distributing it to families in need. We also began to partner with our local neighborhood Food Pantries that are providing distributions weekly (thank you!) by providing food and support to them as they serve our community.
It has become increasingly known that our Seniors are experiencing increased Food Insecurity in our nation and the City of Riverside has stepped up to help them in this season of need. In the Fall of 2022, Love Riverside entered into a new partnership with the City of Riverside (CDBG funded) that is bringing additional food/produce to our Seniors living in Senior Apartments in our city. We are honored to be assisting our Seniors at this time and letting them know we, as a city, care for them in practical ways by bringing additional food to them monthly. Presently, we are serving 19 different Apartment complexes each month. We distribute food to them on Tues, Wed and Thurs.
We invite our community to join us in a number of ways:
1. Volunteer one day a month to distribute food with us
2. Adopt a Senior Apartment complex in the holidays and partner with us to bring additional gifts or goodies to them (Apartments vary between 32-273 units, you can choose one that fits best).
3. Donate financially to Love Riverside so that we can add extra items to our distributions each month.
