About Us

For 43 years, the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank has worked to mobilize resources in the community to alleviate hunger

The Mission of the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank is to mobilize resources to fight hunger in our community.


To fulfill our mission, we source and acquire food and other products and distribute them to needy people through charitable agencies or directly through programs; conduct hunger education and awareness campaigns and advocate for public policies that alleviate hunger; and energize the community to get involved and support hunger relief.


Our Vision is that no one goes hungry in Los Angeles.


Since 1973, the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank has distributed more than 1 billion pounds of food. It provides food to 300,000 people every month and in 2016 we distributed 55 million meals–that’s more than 62 million pounds of food. Twenty percent of that food is fresh produce.

The Food Bank collects food from hundreds of resources, which – with the help of 30,000 volunteers annually – it distributes through a network of more than 625 partner agencies.  Ninety-seven percent of revenue raised goes 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.

You can help fulfill the mission of the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank when you donate today.



We are proud to be rated a “4-star” organization by Charity Navigator.  Read more about our financial stewardship here.
