Mission Statement

Serving Los Angeles County, The Foodbank’s mission is to provide highly nutritional food to the community's hungry citizens and to ensure that no individual go hungry, not even for a single day. The Foodbank’s primary goal is to prevent and alleviate the damage persistent hunger inflicts on children, families, and seniors by fulfilling the basic human right and need for highly nutritional food.

Description

The Foodbank of Southern California ensures access of highly nutritional food for 2.25 million (conservative estimate) food-insecure people each month, by annually providing them with approximately 50 million pounds of highly nutritional food, including over 20 million pounds of fresh produce.

In fulfillment of its mission, The Foodbank will continue to serve as a vital link in the continuum of care that facilitates the needs of low-income people. Through its humanitarian food distribution programs, The Foodbank will provide the safety net for sustaining the health and well-being of the economically disadvantaged.

The Foodbank will provide highly nutritional food to over 752 Nonprofit Partner Agencies as well as 22 sites for specialized nutritional food distribution for impoverished seniors. These community-based organizations feed the needy through both emergency and non-emergency food programs conducted at such places as shelters for abused children and women, crises centers, community centers, day care centers for children and seniors, senior centers, emergency box programs, soup kitchens, and food pantries. The Foodbank works in partnership with each agency to learn about the dietary needs, cultural protocols and acclimation issues of those they serve.

The Foodbank will continue to promote the consumption of fresh produce and other nutritional food items; providing these products to food-insecure children, families and seniors served throughout Los Angeles County.
