Pfc. Erik Pereida, a motor transport operator with the 756th Transportation Company, 746th Combat Sustainment Support Battalion, California Army National Guard, unloads a box of frozen chicken for distribution to food kits at the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank in Vernon, Calif., May 11. Sixty Soldiers assigned to Joint Task Force 224 have been assisting the facility since mid-April. “The Soldiers are just amazing, and they are doing amazing work helping the community,” said Susie Takayoshi, production warehouse manager at the RFB. “Being the mom of a new Marine myself, I really appreciate them!” On an average day, the team is producing over 3,400 meal kits for Californians who need them.
