Feed SoCal: Help end hunger by donating today

ABC7, Albertsons, Vons, Pavilions, Subaru, ESPN LA 710, Mathis Brothers and Southern California regional food banks are partnering up for the 6th Annual Feed SoCal hunger initiative throughout Southern California.

The initiative will take place during the month of June and will include the following food banks in Southern California: Los Angeles Regional Food Bank, Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County, Feeding America Riverside/San Bernardino and FOOD Share, Ventura County's Food Bank. During difficult economic times, one out of every seven people in Southern California experiences food insecurity, and especially during the summer, children, veterans, and the elderly hurt the most. Food banks need your help.
