5 EASY WAYS TO MAKE A
DIFFERENCE IN YOUR COMMUNITY


At Your Fingertips:  Virtual Food Drive
Join in on the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank’s Virtual Food Drive!  With the click of a button, the Virtual Food Drive allows you to provide food to those who are facing hunger in our community.  By holding your food drive online, you will maximize time and resources that are incurred with physical food drives.  Plus, your donations will help us purchase the most needed food items.  Simply click on the Food Drive Registration link to start your very own food drive.  Then, let your friends, family and co-workers help you reach your goal.

The Gift That Keeps On Giving:  Holiday Tribute Cards
Give a gift of compassion this holiday season by paying a tribute to friends, family members, or clients with a generous gift to the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank. The Food Bank will then send you the corresponding number of Tribute Gift holiday cards or Tribute Gift holiday inserts to slip into your own holiday cards. Those on your holiday list will appreciate the generosity you have shown to those in need on their behalf. To order your cards, please call 323.234.3030 x146 or email mcarpenter@lafoodbank.org.


An Easy Way to Help Fight Hunger: Community Connection Card
Donate to the Food Bank through the Food Bank's Community Card Program. With your purchase, you will receive a pre-paid card of equal value that can be redeemed at participating retailers such as Macy's, Gap, Flemings, Staples, Home Depot, Marriott Hotels, Bed Bath & Beyond, Ritz Carlton Hotels and many more! The Food Bank will receive a portion of the proceeds from each card.  Get connected today here!


Have You Heard of MooLaLa?
