FIELDS OF FUNDING
The Los Angeles Regional Food Bank has two flagship events. The “Taste of the Rams” is a joint venture between the food bank, the Los Angeles Rams and the LA Chef community. The annual “Season of Sharing” event is held every year to highlight friends who have made a significant contribution to the fight against hunger in our community.
There are other opportunities for third party events and joint ventures, such as the ‘Feed SoCal’ campaign with Albertsons and ABC7, the ‘Help for the Hungry’ campaign with Ralph’s / Food 4 Less and NBC4 or our peer-to-peer fundraising platform, Team #WeFeedLA.
Volunteers are essential to the Food Bank. Between 15,000 and 30,000 typically volunteer to glean, pack and deliver food to our neighbors in need. The Food Bank provides events and volunteer opportunities for individuals, businesses and organizations. In recent years, the Food Bank has organized special volunteer days with many corporate and VIP partners.
