Help Us Reach Our Goal:
1.5 Million Pounds of Fresh Fruit and Vegetables to Hungry Neighbors!
Help us distribute 1.5 million pounds of fresh fruit and vegetables this year - and provide balanced, well-rounded meals for the hungry.
It won’t be easy to reach this 1.5 million pound goal. That’s a lot of food! But we can do it, with your support. If just 225 of our Partners renew their membership with a gift of $1,000 or more, we can raise the $225,000 we need to meet this important goal - and even exceed it.
It’s such an important thing to do in the fight against hunger. Last year, our goal was to provide one million pounds of food, and your response helped us exceed it! You helped us nearly double the amount of fresh produce we were able to provide last year.
For those who struggle every day to put anything on their table, it’s extremely hard to afford nutritious food. In fact, 66 percent of those who rely on us can’t afford to eat balanced meals at all.
Bad nutrition hurts everyone. But children and the elderly are most vulnerable. Little girls and boys need good, quality food to grow and to learn. And seniors risk severe health problems when they lack balanced diets.
That’s why we’re not just fighting hunger. We’re fighting hunger with healthier food. And we need all of our Partners to join us in this trying time!
Every Partner who contributes $1,000 or more will be recognized
for their caring contribution to this cause:
You already know the Food Bank is the largest distributor of emergency food assistance in Los Angeles County. And you can be assured that your generous gifts will always be used to provide hungry children, seniors and families with food that emphasizes nutrition. In fact, 74 percent of the food we provide is now of high nutritional value.
Please give today and help us meet our goal to provide 1.5 million pounds of fresh fruit and vegetables to hungry neighbors.
