For 42 years, the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank has been mobilizing resources to fight hunger in our community. They distributed 59 million pounds of nutritious food in 2014 – the equivalent of 48 million meals – to 280,500 clients each month in L.A. County.
One in six people in Los Angeles County experiences food insecurity. L.A. households make choices each month between paying for food and utilities, transportation, housing or medicine and medical care. The many faces of hunger in our community include the most vulnerable such as children and seniors.
Every $1 donated allows the Food Bank to distribute the equivalent of four meals through their agency network or Food Bank programs. Plus, our contributions save the Food Bank time and resources incurred through traditional Food Drives.
Thank you for joining with us to give hope to our hungry neighbors.
