Los Angeles Regional Food Bank
The Los Angeles Regional Food Bank mobilizes resources to fight hunger in Los Angeles County. To fulfill its mission, the Food Bank sources and acquires food and other products and distributes them to needy people through charitable agencies or directly through programs. It also energizes the community to get involved and support hunger relief and conducts hunger education and awareness campaigns and advocates for public policies that alleviate hunger.
In 2012, the Food Bank distributed $51.5 million worth of food and grocery products to a network of 653 partner organizations or directly through its programs. More than one million residents of Los Angeles County received food from an agency served by the Food Bank.
