How Other LA Food Resources are Helping the Food Bank Feed Los Angeles County

How Other LA Food Resources are Helping the Food Bank Feed Los Angeles County

As of October 2023, over 600 nonprofit organizations partner with the Food Bank to help provide food assistance to 870,000 individuals each month

The Los Angeles Regional Food Bank works with hundreds of other LA food resources, such as soup kitchens and food pantries, to alleviate hunger in LA County. From weekend meals for children through the BackPack Program to home deliveries for seniors, the Food Bank and its partner agencies distributed 110 million pounds of food and product in 2022, the equivalent of 88 million meals. 

It’s through these partnerships that more families throughout Los Angeles County, from Long Beach to Lancaster, are able to put food on the table and have a positive outlook on life.

What Nonprofits Help the Food Bank?

There are hundreds of nonprofit organizations that are on the front lines with the Food Bank to fight hunger throughout LA County. These nonprofit organizations can be religious organizations, like churches and mosques, to secular organizations. All Food Bank partner agencies are required to serve anyone in need, regardless of religion.

Other nonprofit organizations that are part of the Food Bank’s Partner Agency Network include the Boys and Girls Club, Salvation Army, MEND, and Foothill Unity Center, among many other organizations. Although there are more than 600 partner agencies, many of these organizations have multiple locations, allowing more individuals and families throughout the County to have access to nutritious food right in their neighborhoods.

Partner Agencies Address Food Insecurity Throughout the County

Partnering with other non-profit organizations is crucial in the fight against hunger. Most of the Food Bank’s distribution happens through this network of partner agencies. Partner agencies are often food pantries, but many offer other services. North Valley Caring Services (NVCS) is a partner agency that is essential in addressing food insecurity in the San Fernando Valley.

NVCS is a non-profit organization based in North Hills, Los Angeles County, California, that provides various services and programs to low-income families, individuals, and underserved communities. Among the services that NVCS offers is a food pantry that distributes groceries to those in need. The LA Regional Food Bank is a reliable source of food for NVCS and plays a significant role in the success of its food distribution. The NVCS food pantry is a vital resource for people in the area who are struggling with food insecurity, and it serves as a bridge between those in need and the available food.

As of October 2023, 97% of revenue goes directly to support programs. Your donation to the Food Bank goes a long way to help feed families in need throughout our County. Donate today.
