Let's Send Hunger Packing
When school's out, don't let hunger in!
- 1 out of 4 children in Los Angeles County will go to bed hungry.
- For every $1 donated, food banks can distribute $5 worth of food.
- It only takes $5 to feed a child for a day.
When school is out, hungry kids lose access to daily school sponsored meals. Their struggle with hunger increases during the summer months. Let’s assist the food bank to fill kids’ plates and their tummies. Now, more than ever, local food banks need our summertime donations.
Join us in helping hungry children, families and seniors in our community by filling up your shopping cart!
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.
Please make a gift today to help us reach our team fundraising goal! Thank you for joining with us to give hope to our hungry neighbors.
