Join us every Sunday night from 11pm to midnight as we start the new week with a rundown of what's going on in YOUR community.
Pasadena resident, Tony Collier, founded Los Angeles Regional Food Bank in 1973 at the Grandview Foundation.
Collier, a cook with a charitable organization, received more food donations from local businesses than he anticipated and shared them with other organizations feeding the hungry. Four members of the community impressed with Collier's work formed a voluntary Board of Directors to create the Food Bank.
From its beginning in a two-car garage, the Food Bank moved into a converted 2,600 square foot dry cleaning facility on Fair Oaks Avenue in Pasadena. In 1983, it moved to a 10,000 square foot warehouse in El Monte.
To reflect its service to all areas of Los Angeles County, the organization changed its name to Los Angeles Regional Food Bank in 1986. In 1989, Los Angeles Regional Food Bank moved to its present location: a 96,000 square foot facility specifically designed as a food bank
The mission of the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank is to mobilize resources to fight hunger in our community.
To fulfill our mission we:
Source and acquire food and other products and distribute to needy people through charitable agencies or directly through programs;
Energize the community to get involved and support hunger relief;
Conduct hunger education and awareness campaigns and advocate for public policies that alleviate hunger.
Our vision is that no one goes hungry in Los Angeles County.
Project Angel Food's mission is to nourish the body and spirit of men, women and children
affected by HIV/AIDS, Cancer and other life-threatening illnesses. Volunteers and staff cook
and deliver free and nutritious meals prepared with love throughout Los Angeles County, acting out
of a sense of urgency because hunger and illness do not wait. We deliver more than 13,000
meals every week to people in need.
