The United States has over 40 million people facing hunger every day, creating food insecurity and malnutrition. While many families stuff themselves on Thanksgiving, many homeless people and low-income families go hungry during the holiday season. To solve this issue, Westside Food Bank provides frozen turkeys to Westside Los Angeles’ vulnerable population to allow them to celebrate Thanksgiving as well.
Many families and individuals in the United States are unable to celebrate Thanksgiving with a special meal. Thanksgiving is a time to give back to the community and help the 40 million homeless and food insecure Americans who struggle everyday to feed themselves and their families adequately.

Westside Food Bank is an independent non-profit corporation which provides food to social service agencies on the Westside of Los Angeles County. Our food often enables low-income people to stay in their homes, deterring the problem of homelessness, because it saves them from having to make the agonizing choice between paying for rent or food when they can’t afford both. Receiving our food also enables our 70 member-agencies to devote more of their own resources to other ways of helping clients achieve self respect and economic independence.
