Top 5 2023 LA Regional Food Bank Social Media Posts

The Los Angeles Regional Food Bank can only fight hunger with the support of our incredible donors, volunteers and partners.

Thanks to everyone who continually shows up, including throughout 2023, helping the Food Bank and our partners provide nutritious food assistance to 900,000 food-insecure neighbors monthly and being part of our reach where we could distribute more than 115 million pounds of food to those in need. This feat includes the opportunity and privilege to tell the story of those whom the Food Bank and our partners see. 

One way that the Food Bank can share these stories we are honored to learn about is through our social media networks and the networks of all our collective communities. This blog post highlights some of the most popular social posts throughout the year.

  1. One of the most successful social media posts includes the following Instagram post regarding Metallica and the All Within My Hands Foundation Volunteer Day at the Food Bank, which garnered one of the most substantial impressions. 

The Food Bank is honored to have had Metallica volunteers at the Food Bank again donate their time to fighting hunger in LA County. This effort was connected to their tradition of mobilizing fans worldwide to better their communities. In this case, the volunteer day was related to their two shows at SoFi Stadium. The All Within My Hands volunteer day with Metallica was held on August 25, 2023. Metallica and the All Within My Hands Foundation donated $20,000 to the Food Bank.
