The LA Regional Food Bank Receives a $300,000 Nourishing Neighbors Grant from Albertsons Companies Foundation’s Breakfasts for Kids Program

LOS ANGELES, CA— June 21, 2023 — The Los Angeles Regional Food Bank was awarded a $300,000 grant from the Albertsons Companies Foundation’s Nourishing Neighbors Program. This contribution is specifically aimed at supporting child nutrition programs and providing access to nutritious breakfast to children across Los Angeles County.

The Nourishing Neighbors charitable program tackles hunger by supporting the Food Bank and its programs that facilitate meal distribution programs in schools. 

In recent months, both the Food Bank and its Partner Agency Network have witnessed a significant surge in the demand for food assistance due to the inflation of everyday goods and services and food. By fostering partnerships within the community, the Food Bank remains steadfast in its mission to combat hunger.

“Childhood nutrition forms the foundation for a lifetime of health and well-being,” said Food Bank President and CEO, Michael Flood. “Unfortunately, as many as 1 in 4 children may not know where their next meal is coming from. We’re grateful to the Albertsons Companies Foundation’s Nourishing Neighbors initiative for investing in wholesome, balanced meals for children, unlocking the doors to a brighter future filled with limitless possibilities.”

The Food Bank is thankful to the Albertsons Companies Foundation for its commitment to helping communities with the greatest needs. To learn more about the Food Bank’s Children’s Nutrition Programs, please visit this webpage.
