The Los Angeles Food Bank

by david pressman events

As an event planner my colleagues and I see great amounts of food go to waste. And with our society becoming more and more litigious, we’re no longer allowed to deliver left-over food to food kitchens, pantries, Church’s, Mosques, Synagogue’s or other places where those in need can find food readily available.

The Los Angeles Regional Food Bank  is marking it’s 40th year of service to the greater Los Angeles community, distributing over 1 million pounds of food on a weekly basis. And they are a lifeline to hundreds of thousands of people we see on the streets around us every day.

Where do they get their food that they in turn make available to outreach programs for those in need. It’s a great list, and worth sharing so you might consider supporting these companies (politics aside, this is philanthropy). These are the top food donors and the poundage they have donated since 2002. And if you don’t see your Big Box food store of choice on this list, i.e., where’s Costco
