Los Angeles Clippers Partner with LA Regional Food Bank to Fight Hunger in Los Angeles

Los Angeles Clippers Partner with LA Regional Food Bank to Fight Hunger in Los Angeles

At the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank, we believe in the power of community and collaboration. That’s why we were honored to join hands with the Los Angeles Clippers at their annual Feed the Community event held at the Kia Forum in Inglewood.

This event showed that the Clippers are committed to giving back and saw a collective effort, with volunteers from our organization working alongside the Clippers and their supporting partner, Pechanga Resort Casino.

“We really appreciate the Clippers approaching us,” shared Michael Flood, CEO of the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank. “We’ve made this an annual event now, helping people who are struggling in Inglewood and the surrounding areas.”

Just at this event, the collaboration made 40,000 pounds of food available to the community, which translates to 33,000 meals for 1,000 families in need.

But this event was about more than just food. Families had the unique opportunity to be served by some of the Clippers’ players. Rookies Jordan Miller and Kobe Brown, along with sophomore Moussa Diabate and veteran Mason Plumlee, graced the event, bridging the gap between the community and our Los Angeles Clippers basketball heroes.

Mason Plumlee expressed the significance of such interactions, saying, “It’s just a great opportunity to connect. We see them in the arena or see them wearing merchandise that represents the Clippers. So, to get out and give back and interact with them is a lot of fun for us.”

The Kia Forum, where the event took place, is conveniently located just a mile from the Intuit Dome, which will become the Clippers’ new home starting next season.

In addition to the Feed the Community event, we’d like to highlight the remarkable effort made by the LA Clippers staff. The Friday preceding the distribution, they dedicated their time at our new City of Industry warehouse, where they packed 1,400 food kits. These kits will also be distributed into the community, further demonstrating the Clippers’ commitment to making a difference in the lives of those in need. This collaborative endeavor embodies the spirit of community and shared responsibility, and we are deeply grateful for their support in our mission to combat hunger in Los Angeles County.

This partnership between the Los Angeles Clippers, their partners and the LA Regional Food Bank exemplifies the spirit of unity and shared responsibility. It’s a testament to how sports teams and nonprofit organizations can come together to make a positive impact on the community.

At the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank, we remain committed to our mission of fighting hunger and making a difference in the lives of those in need. We are grateful for opportunities like these, where we can collaborate with organizations like the Clippers to serve our community better.

Together, we can create a brighter future for Los Angeles County, one meal at a time. Thank you to the Clippers for their ongoing support in our mission to alleviate hunger.
