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.
Our Vision is that no one goes hungry in Los Angeles County. To fulfill our mission, we source and distribute food, and other products to those in need with the help of partnering agencies and Food Bank programs. We also conduct hunger education and awareness campaigns and advocate for public policies that alleviate hunger.
Since 1973, the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank has distributed more than 1 billion pounds of food. It provides food to 320,000 people every month and in 2015 we distributed 52 million meals–that’s more than 62 million pounds of food. 20 percent of that food is fresh produce.
The Food Bank collects food from hundreds of resources, which – with the help of 27,000 volunteers annually – it distributes through a network of more than 600 partner agencies. 97 percent of revenue raised go 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.
