Tyler Higbee, Tremayne Anchrum Jr. and Others From the Los Angeles Rams Tackle Hunger With the LA Regional Food Bank

Super Bowl LVI Champion the Los Angeles Rams partnered with the Food Bank to host two food distributions

Super Bowl LVI Champions, the Los Angeles Rams, teamed up with the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank to host a walk-up food distribution at Ted Watkins Park in South LA, and a drive-through distribution at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood as part of their Tackling Hunger Campaign. Rams players Tyler Higbee and Tremayne Anchrum were volunteers in distributing food to the community.

Thanks to contributions from the community, organizations, and corporations, nearly 2,000 families benefited from the distribution where the aforementioned Rams players, mascot Rampage, Rams cheerleaders, and staff from various organizations were in attendance as volunteers, and happily served each individual that came by.

A Great Need

With both distributions starting at 9 AM, families began lining up more than an hour before in mid-40-degree temperatures. The cold temperatures didn’t stop these families from getting in line in order to get the food they need.

Despite inflation rates slightly decreasing from previous months, the high cost of everyday essentials like food is much more expensive than they were just a few years ago. Purchasing these essentials has become a larger burden to all families, even those who have multiple incomes.

Once the distributions were underway, families in need of food assistance were able to access nutritious items like fresh produce, canned goods for the whole family, whole chickens to make soup for the colder weather, or other protein items like ground turkey. With the current prices in food items, the Food Bank estimates that families are able to take home nearly $100 worth of groceries.

The Food Bank thanks the LA Rams for their amazing service and dedication to LA County community. Learn more on how to volunteer with the Food Bank here, or you may also donate to help continue providing food to individuals in need.
