The Foodbank of Southern California

Franklin Delano Roosevelt served as the 32nd president of the United States and guided the country through the worst era of hunger and economic depression it had ever experienced.
A Letter from H. Delano Roosevelt

My grandfather, United States President, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, addressed Congress in 1941 stating: “We look forward to a world founded upon four essential human freedoms…

To me, the most important of these is the Freedom from Want—which, translated into world terms, means economic understandings which will secure to every nation a healthy peacetime life for its inhabitants—everywhere in the world.

Hunger is as much a struggle today as it was in 1941 and The Foodbank addresses this need.

It is The Foodbank’s philosophy that no person, not even for a single day, should go without wholesome nutritious food.

H. Delano Roosevelt
