One day after California Governor Gavin Newsom ordered a statewide stay at home order, he announced the deployment of the National Guard to help distribute food to people in need.
The national guard will distribute food to food banks who have seen a shortage in volunteers due to the Coronavirus to vulnerable populations across the state.
Newsom stated, “It’s in these times of crisis that Californians are at their best, coming to the aid of those in their community who are most in need.”
Today, the California Guard started to deploy inviduals and logistical equipment to a food bank distribution warehouse in Sacramento County and are working to expand site assessments statewide. Developing story.
