Westside Food Bank has been serving the Los Angeles community since 1981. We currently provide nearly 4.5 million pounds of food for over 108,000 people in West Los Angeles County every year. Our mission is to end hunger in our communities by providing access to free nutritious food through food acquisition and distribution, and by engaging the community and advocating for a strong food assistance network.
