8 Simple Ways To Support The Food Bank During Hunger Action Month

September is Hunger Action Month. During this time, people all across America stand together to fight hunger.

In Los Angeles County alone, 1 in 7 people struggle with hunger,
but you can join us to make a difference.

Here are 8 simple ways to get involved!

1. VOLUNTEER

Lend a hand at the Food Bank! We rely on more than 30,000 Hunger Hero volunteers on an annual basis. Become a Hunger Hero by volunteering.

2. DONATE

Every $1 donated to the Food Bank provides 4 nutritious meals for someone struggling with hunger. Just imagine, if you gave up one $5 latte every week and donated to the Food Bank instead, you’d help us distribute more than 1,000 meals in one year! Visit LAFoodBank.org/donate to learn how to make a monthly, tax-deductible donation.

3. FUNDRAISE

Virtual Food Drives are a convenient way to help the Food Bank provide nutritious food for our neighbors in need.
