On Saturday March 26th a group of volunteers from the Asomugha Foundation joined the Los Angeles Food Bank to help sort and provide meals to hungry and impoverished children, families, and seniors in the greater LA County. With 1 in 6 individuals struggling to make ends meet in Los Angeles, this service project was dedicated to serving these individuals and ensuring they had access to healthy and nutritious foods.
Following an introductory video, the volunteers were split into two groups and given responsibilities that included organizing donated fruits and vegetables, and sorting canned and boxed food items.
Additional Foundation volunteers then sorted these items and organized them into food and beverage groups – making it easy for the items to be distributed and consumed by the Food Bank’s clients.
By the end of the three hours, the group of volunteers had sorted hundreds of items, and contributed to the Food Bank’s efforts to ensure that the donated foods would properly make it to the residents and neighbors most in need.
The Foundation is proud of its partnership with the LA Food Bank, and the work that was carried out – together – for the community. Please stay tuned for additional ways to get involved in our community and with the Foundation, and we do hope you will join us for next year’s 3rd Annual “Stock the Pantry” service project. Thank you in advance for your support!
