Hunger is not just a COVID-era problem. We surveyed 6,000 Food Bank participants to learn about the challenges they face. The responses were clear. High cost of living, lack of social safety nets, systemic racism and other inequalities mean many struggle to afford rent, bills, and food. It will take collective action to end hunger, from individuals to community partners to policymakers. Read our 2022 Hunger Report to learn more.
Our Food Locator tool can help you find weekly free groceries, monthly food boxes for seniors, one-time emergency food, or help to enroll in CalFresh (food stamps).
The Food Bank is a lifeline for many. As the pandemic raged, food insecurity increased. Facing challenges, we have pushed our warehouse to its limit. Help us expand to serve over 200,000 people weekly. Join the Campaign for a Future Without Hunger.
Pre-COVID, we were already a lifeline for 140,000 people weekly. The pandemic forced thousands more to turn to us for help. We aren’t renovating to expand, but to sustain — to continue to meet the elevated levels of need and to be able to serve more than 200,000 people weekly.See more videos
