Businesses Can Donate Surplus Food More Easily Now
Through a partnership between leading food providers, businesses and non-profits, along with the help of Councilman Jose Huizar (CD 14), a plan has been implemented in order to make it easier for businesses to donate their surplus food to those in need.
Help Feed L.A. brings together the L.A. Regional Food Bank, Albertsons, Hunger Action L.A. and L.A. Shares with the aim of addressing the needs of 1 million Los Angeles County residents who need emergency food services. Through their efforts, businesses can now be educated about how to donate, and the process of making the donations has been made easier.
By dialing 311, businesses can ask about charitable organizations accepting donations, or, by contacting a Help Feed L.A. partner organization, can make arrangements for a food pick-up directly with them.
