Los Angeles Chargers Donate $250,000 for Hunger Relief During Coronavirus Crisis

THE LOS ANGELES REGIONAL FOOD BANK RECEIVES $250,000 DONATION FROM THE LOS ANGELES CHARGERS

The Los Angeles Regional Food Bank announces a generous $250,000 gift from The Los Angeles Chargers to ensure hunger relief services continue uninterrupted for Los Angeles County children, seniors, individuals and families amid the Coronavirus crisis. The Los Angeles Regional Food Bank is experiencing unexpected distribution and operational costs due to the increased demand in our community.

During this unprecedented time, the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank is committed to helping those who need food assistance. The recent actions taken at the federal, state and local levels are needed to combat the spread of the Coronavirus and will also put a significant additional strain on local families and individuals. The Food Bank is hiring temporary workers, utilizing the Mobile Food Pantries and is ensuring rigorous health protocols are maintained to continue safe service to vulnerable populations.

“In moments like this, it is incumbent upon us as a community to band together and provide help where it is needed most,” said Chargers President of Business Operations A.G. Spanos. “We’re honored to help the Food Bank provide some certainty and relief for those impacted by the Coronavirus crisis in what has become an increasingly uncertain time.”

The Chargers distribute food annually at their facility and contribute financially to the work of the Food Bank. Team members and staff also volunteer regularly to help glean food and pack boxes.

“The Los Angeles Chargers have been an incredible supporter of the Food Bank over the years, and this is yet another example of their tremendous commitment to their community,” said President and CEO, Michael Flood. “We are humbled by this amazing gift, which will go a long way to help those who are hurting right now.”

With this gift, the Food Bank will be able to help children and their families as children stay home from school, as well as seniors who are self-isolating and hourly workers who are experiencing interruptions to their schedules and paychecks.
