According to statistics, Lawndale underutilizes various government assistance programs, including CalFresh, formerly known as food stamps. LESD has partnered with the Department of Social Services in an effort to inform households and encourage their participation. Like the district, Cal Fresh encourages everyone to consume more fruits and vegetables in order to lead a healthier lifestyle. To apply, visit the CalFresh website: www.calfresh.ca.gov
