Bank of America Donates $250,000 to the LA Regional Food Bank

Bank of America incentivized its employees to get their COVID-19 booster shots by donating money for every booster shot to local food banks throughout January 2022

A longtime partner of the LA Regional Food Bank, Bank of America kicked off the new year with a campaign to address hunger relief and community health needs by incentivizing its staff to get their COVID-19 booster shots by donating $100 for every booster shot to local food banks, including the LA Regional Food Bank throughout January. This hunger relief initiative resulted in a $250,000 donation for the Food Bank.

 

As the pandemic continues to impact Los Angeles, 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.”

Over the years, Bank of America has provided nearly $1 million to alleviate hunger throughout LA County to help meet the high demands of food-insecure families. Bank of America has donated more than one million pieces of Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) to local nonprofits and food banks across Los Angeles to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19.

Engaged partnerships in our community make the work of the Food Bank possible, especially as food banks all over continue pandemic response efforts while families are still recovering. We are fortunate to have partners such as Bank of America, who also prioritizes collaboration to help better serve the community. The Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation (LADF), another strong supporter of the Food Bank, has also been vital in pandemic response efforts in LA County. The organization provided an emergency response COVID-19 grant for $25,000 to provide meals to vulnerable families, as well as supporting the Food Bank in other ways. 

“We rely on partnerships to complete our essential work,” said Michael Flood, President and CEO of the LA Regional Food Bank. “The Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation and Bank of America are both great partners, and this booster campaign from Bank of America was a creative way to give back to the community.” 

Through our Partner Agency Network of more than 600 other nonprofits in LA County, donors, volunteers, community partners and generous gifts like this one help the Food Bank reach hundreds of thousands of families in need each month.
