How the Food Bank Distributes 4 Meals for $1 Donated > 

In 2020 and 2021, the Food Bank was in the headlines, similarly to other food banks across the country, as families were experiencing even more financial hardship due to the ongoing pandemic and its economic fallout. Miles of parked cars playing on multiple news stations were becoming the norm as many food-insecure families, both new and familiar with food insecurity, were turning to help for food assistance.

Food banks are back in the news. However, it is due to historical inflation. Low and middle-income families have a harder time absorbing price increases during current inflation when their budgets are already fixed. The Food Bank and our partner agency network throughout LA County are seeing a natural increase in food assistance from working families, many with multiple jobs, who are struggling to make ends meet.
