Our 11th annual “Let’s Send Hunger Packing” food drive for the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank takes place from June 26 to August 31, 2023. We are pleased to team up again with Compass Real Estate.
In California, 2 million children live in low-income households and are affected by hunger. For some children, the only meal they receive is at school. When school is out for the summer, families turn to a food bank for assistance. However, during the summer, food banks often experience a decline of donations. And, due to the continuing surge in inflation; food banks are paying more for food, transportation and distribution. Food Banks need our help more than ever.
Kids and their families need our support. Due to the U.S. government’s recent cuts to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) many families are struggling to put food on the table. In Los Angeles County, where the cost of living is high, hunger rates are near peak pandemic levels.
What you can do:
In just one click, you can provide 12 meals for the same cost as your daily coffee.
The 11th annual Let’s Send Hunger Packing Food Drive is all online. All donations will directly assist the needs of the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank.
To make a monetary online donation:
- 1 out of 4 children in Los Angeles will go to bed hungry tonight.
- Nearly 80% of the children in the Los Angeles Unified School District live in poverty and struggle with hunger.
- Every $1 equals 4 nutritious meals.
- Every $25 donated provides enough food for up to 100 meals to feed hungry children, seniors and families.
Last year’s food drive raised $44,630 for the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank, providing 178,520 meals to feed hungry children in Los Angeles County. We are grateful to all of you who participated last year and we need your support again this year. Together, we can feed even more kids!
When is the food drive:
June 26, 2023 through August 31, 2023
