Here’s what you need to know ABOUT CANNED FOOD DRIVES:

  • Collection Boxes
    • The Food Bank prefers boxed donations. If you need boxes provided for you, feel free to pick some up at our South LA warehouse. We can provide up to 10 boxes, but please keep in mind that pickups need to be scheduled! To schedule a box pickup, please contact mgoldstein@lafoodbank.org.
  • Drop-Offs
    • Once your food drive concludes, you can drop off your donation at our main location in South LA. Please schedule an appointment with us at least 24 hours in advance. If you have collected more than 1,000 pounds of food, please contact Morgan Goldstein at mgoldstein@lafoodbank.org.
  • Local Pantries
    • Alternatively, you are also welcome to reach out to any local pantries in your area to drop off the collected food. You can find local pantries by inputting your zip code on this webpage.

LEARN MORE ABOUT VIRTUAL FOOD DRIVES

Donating food is core to the work of food banks, including the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank. Volunteering is also critical and allows food banks to glean, sort, package and distribute food throughout their service areas. While food donations and donated time are greatly appreciated, the Food Bank also relies on monetary donations, which provide the greatest flexibility in the fight against hunger.
