Summer and Winter Food Drives

To kick off the summer, the Food Bank teams up with ABC7 for the month-long campaign, Feed SoCal to provide meals for food-insecure families throughout Southern California. In the latest event, the Food Bank and ABC7 raised more than $40,000 and more than 5,300 pounds of food.

The need is great throughout the whole year but even greater throughout the holiday season. Local news channel NBC4 launched ‘Help 4 the Hungry’ in 2018 in partnership with the Food Bank and other Southern California food banks. The month-long campaign that runs through the holiday season has raised nearly $1.1 million dollars in cash donations and provided seven million meals across the region. 

KTLA5’s Food Drive teams up with the Food Bank every year for the past six years to collect food and funds for those struggling with food insecurity in our community. Community members have the opportunity to drive through or walk up and drop off their donations of food or cash.

Volunteer at the Food Bank

Thanks to the help of tens of thousands of volunteers that help unload, sort and glean food each year, the Food Bank can continue to provide meals to food-insecure individuals. Learn how you can volunteer as an individual or group, or host a volunteer event.
