The mission of the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank is to mobilize resources to fight hunger in our community.
To meet our mission goals we:
- Source and acquire food and other products and distribute to needy people through charitable agencies or directly through programs;
- Energize the community to get involved and support hunger relief;
- Conduct hunger education and awareness campaigns and advocate for public policies that alleviate hunger.
Los Angeles Regional Food Bank is a private, nonprofit, charitable organization that has been serving the disadvantaged of our community since 1973. We are at the heart of a charitable food distribution network that includes more than 1,000 charitable agency sites throughout Los Angeles County. A voluntary board of directors provides guidance and oversight for Food Bank activities.
The Los Angeles Regional Food Bank is a partner with Feeding America, a national network of food banks. Feeding America is the nation's largest non-governmental, domestic hunger relief organization. As a partner, we follow the guidelines put forth by the network and are subject to monitoring. Los Angeles Regional Food Bank upholds the highest standards of charitable food distribution. We are also connected to and cooperate with food banks throughout the country. Los Angeles Regional Food Bank is the only Feeding America affiliated food bank in Los Angeles County.
