Raytheon Technologies Provides Enough Funding for 400,000 Meals in Los Angeles County

Raytheon Technologies Provides Enough Funding for 400,000 Meals in Los Angeles County

As part of Raytheon Technologies’ $3 million investment in equitable food access, the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank will receive enough in funding to provide up to 400,000 meals to children, seniors, families, and individuals throughout Los Angeles County. This gift will go a long way as the LA Regional Food Bank continues to alleviate hunger for roughly 800,000 people every month.

In addition to providing financial support to the community through the LA Regional Food Bank, Raytheon Technologies has also contributed more than 570 volunteer hours in just the past few years. Volunteers are central to the Food Bank’s operations, as roughly 150,000 volunteer hours are contributed annually, generating the equivalent of more than 75 full-time employees.

As a nonprofit organization, the LA Regional Food Bank relies on financial gifts, like this one provided by Raytheon Technologies. Because the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank is a highly-efficient nonprofit, each dollar donated helps to provide four meals for those in need.

“Raytheon Technologies has once again demonstrated their commitment to underserved communities by providing this funding,” said President and CEO, Michael Flood. “As a nonprofit organization, we rely on partnerships to complete our essential work, and this gift will alleviate food and nutrition insecurity throughout Los Angeles County.”

Raytheon Technologies has been supporting the LA Regional Food Bank for 15 years. The company recently announced it is expanding its commitment to Feeding America’s Equitable Food Access and Military Hunger Advocacy initiatives. This investment will fund programs focused on the acceleration of hunger relief among people most at risk, specifically underserved communities and military families.

“Our vision for a safer, more connected world is made possible through partnerships with organizations like Feeding America,” said Pam Erickson, Raytheon Technologies’ chief communications officer and head of corporate social responsibility. “Supporting the local communities where our employees live and work is our responsibility and we are committed to helping solve the food security challenge.”
