Foodbank of Southern California
Community Service OrganizationsNon-Profit Organizations
At The Foodbank of Southern California, we strive to be a key force against hunger by providing highly nutritious food to the community’s hungry citizens.
We procure, transport, sanitize, repackage, refrigerate, store and distribute between 40 and 60 million pounds of food per year.
We then channel the food as quickly as possible – often within hours — to hundreds of charitable organizations that re-distribute it to the neediest children, adults, seniors and families in our region. These organizations depend on the Foodbank because they are not able to independently handle the logistics of transportation, warehouse space and refrigeration.
Although most of our food is distributed through local partners, we also directly distribute food through our mobile food pantry program in conjunction with local organizations. Through this program, we reach deeply into low-income neighborhoods with little access to fresh nutritious food.
