The Foodbank of Southern California

Your philanthropic donations make it possible for The Foodbank to distribute over 40 million pounds of highly nutritional food to hundreds of certified charitable agencies

As a result of the philanthropic donations we receive, we provide organizations with the food to feed hundreds of thousands of hungry people. Each week 67 out of every 100 people served are children, and 20 out of every 100 are seniors.

In its 46th year of service, The Foodbank of Southern California is operating at peak efficiency providing $20 worth of food for every $1 you donate.  Nationwide this figure is unprecedented and remains unmatched in food banking today. The National range is $3 to $9.

The Foodbank prides itself in only asking you for the philanthropic support it needs to efficiently conduct its programs and services.

The Foodbank’s administrative operations are geared to maximize funding so that community dollars go directly to feeding the hungry.  The Foodbank does not raise funds for over inflated budgets or flashy inappropriate overhead expenses; 88 cents of every dollar you donate goes directly to feeding the hungry, while 12 cents is used for administration and fundraising.
