Los Angeles Regional Food Bank Granted A $250,000 Contribution From AIG Foundation to Help Communities in LA County

LOS ANGELES, CA— November 3, 2021 — The Los Angeles Regional Food Bank received a generous $250,000 donation from the AIG Foundation’s $2 million total contributions to Feeding America to help communities that have been disproportionately impacted by food insecurity. This donation will support the Food Bank’s efforts to combat hunger in the local community and work to address the increased needs of our communities due to COVID-19.

The LA Regional Food Bank is thankful to the AIG Foundation for its commitment to helping communities with the greatest needs. Prior to the pandemic, the LA Regional Food Bank and our Partner Agency Network was reaching roughly 300,000 people each month, but now, that number is closer to 900,000. With AIG’s support, we will be able to provide more meals to our neighbors who struggle to put food on their tables,” said Michael Flood, President and CEO of the LA Regional Food Bank.

Laura Gallagher, AIG’s Global Head of Corporate Citizenship and President of the AIG Foundation commented, “It goes without saying that 2020 raised extraordinary difficulties for the communities where we live, work and serve our customers. Our company is committed to helping individuals, businesses, and communities prepare for and respond to times of uncertainty. As we address the challenges presented by the pandemic going forward, as well as the traumatic events that exposed the depth of inequality that continues to affect our society, the AIG Foundation aims to make a meaningful impact by providing pandemic relief for basic needs.”

The AIG Foundation’s donation is part of the company’s commitment to making a difference in the communities in which they operate through programs, partnerships and philanthropy that leverage the skills, experience, knowledge, and enthusiasm of AIG’s employees.
