Los Angeles Regional Food Bank 

For 43 years, the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank has worked to mobilize resources in the community to alleviate hunger. With a vision that no one goes hungry in Los Angeles County, the Food Bank has distributed more than 1 billion pounds of food since its inception. It provides food to 320,500 people monthly and in 2015 distributed 63 million pounds of food. The Food Bank collects food from hundreds of resources, which – with the help of 27,000 volunteers annually – it distributes through a network of more than 625 partner agencies at more than 1,000 distribution and program sites. In addition, 97 percent of monies raised and in-kind donations go directly to programs. Our efficiency and effectiveness led the LA Business Journal to name the Food Bank as the “Nonprofit Organization of the Year” among large local organizations in 2013.

Second Harvest Food Bank

Second Harvest Food Bank is working to end hunger in Orange County. Last year, we provided enough food to distribute 25.1 million meals. More than 90 cents of every dollar spent goes to feeding the hungry. For more information visit
