Chargers Wide Receiver Quentin Johnston Volunteers at LA Regional Food Bank

In a heartwarming display of community spirit, Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Quentin Johnston spent the afternoon on November 14, 2023, volunteering at the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank. Johnston, who is known for his athleticism and dedication on the field, demonstrated his commitment to giving back to the community by assisting in packaging food for later distribution.

During his time at the Food Bank, Johnston worked alongside volunteers from corporate groups, and who signed up as individual volunteers at LAFoodBank.org/volunteer. These volunteers were united by a shared desire to combat food insecurity in Los Angeles County. Together, they packaged an array of non-perishable food items so that families in need would have access to essential nourishment before the Thanksgiving holiday.

Johnston’s presence at the Food Bank brought a sense of excitement and camaraderie to the event. His infectious energy and genuine care for others were evident as he interacted with fellow volunteers and Food Bank staff. His willingness to lend a hand and his dedication to making a difference inspired those around him.

Johnston’s volunteer efforts are a testament to his character and his commitment to using his platform to make a difference. His actions serve as a reminder that even the most successful individuals can take the time to support those less fortunate.

Johnston also toured the LA Regional Food Bank’s new distribution center in the City of Industry, which will allow the Food Bank to provide more nutritious food throughout the communities of Los Angeles County.

The Los Angeles Regional Food Bank works with partner agencies to serve 900,000 people each month and relies heavily on the support of volunteers like Johnston. Their efforts are vital in ensuring that the Food Bank can continue to provide essential food assistance to families in need.

“We are incredibly grateful for Quentin Johnston’s commitment to fighting hunger in our community,” said Ana Martinez, Sr. Director of Volunteer Services & Partnerships for the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank. “His willingness to volunteer his time and energy is an inspiration to us all.”

Johnston’s act of kindness serves as a reminder that we all have a role to play in addressing the issue of food insecurity. By volunteering our time, donating to food banks, and advocating for policies that support access to nutritious food, we can make a meaningful difference in the lives of others.

Together, we can create a community where everyone has access to the healthy food they need to thrive.
