Your Help Is Vitally Important

This is a great chance to make a difference in the Southland community. The food and funds raised will help the Food Bank supply more than 650 charitable agencies (adding up to more than 1,000 sites) that provide food for low-income children, families, senior citizens and individuals in need throughout Los Angeles County. The Food Bank currently provides the equivalent of 830,000 meals every week.

Our help allows the Food Bank to secure and distribute nutritious food, staples and personal-care items to serve more children and families in need. With every $1 we raise, the Food Bank can distribute enough food for 4 meals.

Did We Mention…YOU’RE AMAZING!!

That’s why we work so hard all year to bring you premier social media programming and offer great free gifts to you from our sponsors. You’ve helped us bring a lot of joy to people in need at past holiday parties, and raise awareness on social media for wonderful Los Angeles programs that help the homeless and hungry.

Thank you for your help!
