Bank of America Donates $125,000 to the LA Regional Food Bank

Los Angeles Regional Food Bank recently received a boost in the form of a $125,000 donation from Bank of America to help address food insecurity in Greater Los Angeles.

Bank of America donates $125,000 to the Food Bank

The donation is the result of a unique campaign BofA created encouraging its own local bank employees to get a new coronavirus vaccine, booster or flu shot this season, with money going to local hunger relief organizations for every shot an employee gets. Nationwide, Bank of America employees generated $8 million to food banks this Fall. It’s the second employee booster campaign the bank has done, and together, both efforts have generated nearly $20 million in additional funding to local food banks nationwide while helping to mitigate rising flu and covid cases amongst its employees.

“This is another example of outstanding corporate and social responsibility coming from Bank of America,” said Michael Flood, President and CEO of the LA Regional Food Bank. “Bank of America has helped the Food Bank in various ways including volunteering and has been creative in tying its financial support to initiatives that help the overall health of our community.”

The most recent funds from Bank of America will enable the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank to provide 500,000 additional meals for local people in need.

Since the pandemic, Bank of America has provided over $2 million to alleviate hunger throughout LA County, to help meet the high demands of food-insecure families.

“As Los Angeles continues to recover from the pandemic, food banks and hunger relief organizations are still experiencing significant demand and higher costs to meet the needs of the community,” said Raul A. Anaya, President, Bank of America, Greater Los Angeles. “Our commitment to help strengthen the communities we live in and serve is unwavering, which is why we are investing in the health, safety and wellbeing of our teammates while also providing funds to help local food banks fight food insecurity.”

The Food Bank is grateful to Bank of America employees for participating in this campaign and thankful for Bank of America’s continued partnership.
