Quick Overview: Our Saviour Center's Food Bank was founded in 1985 and today distributes over 450 tons of food to food insecure families in the San Gabriel Valley. All persons facing food insecurity are welcome at our food bank. At least (2) bags of food are given per household. Food is intended to be taken off-site and consumed elsewhere. This is a food bank, not a food kitchen.
