The Los Angeles Regional Food Bank (LARFB) serves more than 300,000 people each month through a variety of programs meant to “mobilize resources to fight hunger in the community.” In 2016, LARFB’s long-time supporter, Albertsons Companies Foundation, invited the food bank to apply for funding to support efforts to end childhood hunger through the Hunger Is initiative, a joint charitable program they have with the Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF). The Hunger Is grant helps address a glaring need in the Los Angeles County: the thousands of kids facing a hunger gap of weekends and summers when school food was not available.
