Film Freak Thanksgiving Food Drive

Film Freak Thanksgiving Food Drive – Annually in November

Each year, the weekend before Thanksgiving, Leo Quinones, host of The Film Freak Movie Interview, heard on CBS Radio’s KFWB NewsTalk 980 AM Los Angeles, raises 100,000 pounds of much-needed food for The Foodbank of Southern California.

2019 marks the 22nd year that Leo has taken on a holiday effort to help the less fortunate. The community’s financial support of this effort makes it possible for families, who otherwise go hungry on Thanksgiving, to celebrate this national holiday with dignity and grace.

Film Freak Food Drive 2016

Leo has a personal stake to “deliver the goods,” as this fundraiser has grown to become one of the largest, most efficient food drives that benefits the hungry throughout Los Angeles County.

Leo personally oversees bulk food purchases (made with donated funds), gathering the best of the best! High priority Thanksgiving staples include Mrs. Cubbison’s Stuffing, OceanSpray Cranberry Sauce and Libby’s Pumpkin Pie Mix.

These quality food items are rare for the less fortunate. Leo will not stop until he has ‘Stuffed-the-Truck’ with food!

Join Leo any of the three days the weekend before Thanksgiving in November, at Smart & Final located at 11221 Pico Blvd Los Angeles, CA 90064.

Bring Leo your tax-deductible monetary donation, payable to The Foodbank of Southern California, or go online and make your donation on The Foodbank’s website: FilmFreakDonations
