Los Angeles Regional Food Bank
The service area is Los Angeles County, the most populous county in the country. Approximately 1 in 7 people in Los Angeles County are food insecure.
The mission of the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank is to mobilize resources to fight hunger in our community. The Food Bank’s vision is that no one goes hungry in Los Angeles County.
In 2017, the Food Bank distributed 68 million pounds of food to those in need. Since its founding, the Food Bank has provided enough food for more than one billion meals.
The Los Angeles Regional Food Bank has two flagship events. The “Taste of the Rams,” which is a joint venture between the Food Bank, the Los Angeles Rams and the LA Chef community. The Annual
“Season for Sharing” Luncheon is held each year to highlight those friends who have made a significant contribution to fighting hunger in our community. There are other opportunities for third-party events and co-ventures, such as the “Feed SoCal” campaign with Albertsons and ABC7 and the annual checkout campaign with NORMS restaurants.
Volunteers are critical to the Food Bank. More than 30,000 volunteers donate their time each year to help glean and package food for our neighbors in need.
