LA RAMS / LA REGIONAL FOOD BANK / ABC7 / UNITED WAY
The Los Angeles Rams community engagement has been outstanding since the team returned to Los Angeles. One impactful recent example is how over the past year, the Rams increased the team’s partnership with the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank by working with ABC7 to sponsor a pandemic relief telethon that raised $2.2 million for the Food Bank and United Way in March 2020 at the beginning of the pandemic.
This effective partnership also ensured one of the first events held at the new SoFi Stadium was a food distribution for Inglewood residents and people from nearby communities which occurred the week before the first Rams home game in the stadium. The Rams also sponsored two additional food distributions with the Food Bank to help families before Thanksgiving and the December holiday season. In total, 7,500 families received nutritious food items to meet their food needs. Even the team’s “Taste of the Rams” virtual event featuring Los Angeles chefs provided all proceeds to benefit the Food Bank.
In addition, Rams players and personnel volunteer their time for all of these events which demonstrates the team’s commitment to serving the greater Los Angeles Community. The team is also a consistent financial supporter of the Food Bank and many other charities in Los Angeles.
