We’re lovers of food here at Giive. Unfortunately, not everyone has access to tasty, nutritious meals. The LA Food Bank is changing that and YOU can help!
Food comes in through a variety of sources, including donations of surplus supplies from major grocery stores, local food shops and the USDA. The LA Food Bank doesn’t just provide any old food though.
“Fresh produce is a big part of what we do,” said Michael Flood, CEO and President of the LA Food Bank.
The food bank also sources fresh produce from local farmers and growers to ensure healthy and nutritious meals.
After the food is inspected and sorted, or ‘gleamed’, it’s picked up by one of over 700 nonprofits and clients served by the LA Food Bank. The food doesn’t just feed LA, but goes to various parts of SoCal, reaching as far as Lancaster and Pomona.
Anyone ages 14 and up can volunteer. To volunteer and for more information, go to lafoodbank.org.
Volunteer and help give one of life’s best gifts — a good meal.
