Times are tough, where to get free food if you need it


The biggest free food distributer in Mammoth is though the Inyo Mono Advocates for Community Action (IMACA), which is located off of Old Mammoth Road in the Plaza Mall that holds Country Liquor. It is across the street from The Stove. There are also a variety of food drops in most of the outlying communities of the county, during certain days and times during the month. Go to imaca.net for more information. Click on the “Food and Garden” tab.
