St. Monica sponsors the monthly Loaves & Fishes Food Drive, which helps provide food to the Westside Food Bank and the St. Joseph Center Food Bank. The food is distributed to individuals and families in need in our local community, and to organizations that work with people in need. Help us make sure that everyone can get the nutrition that they need.
Food insecurity is currently at an all-time high throughout L.A. and on the Westside—because of financial challenges sparked by the pandemic, many individuals and families are reaching out for food support for the very first time. The need is great—for example, from March 2020 to October 2020, Los Angeles food banks distributed 145% more food than normal.
And that's why, especially during COVID-19, St. Monica is still teaming up with Westside Food Bank to fight hunger! Westside Food Bank, a great community organization that provides food to individuals, and to over 50 local agencies that serve people in need.
For every $1 that you donate, the Food Bank can feed four (4) people! (Buying food in bulk cuts the costs significantly.)
