PARTNERSHIPS BEYOND PANTRIES: HFC SERVES AS HUB FOR OTHER PROGRAMS
To have a greater impact, the Valley Food Bank partners with local organizations who are also working to bring food to those in need. The Hollywood Food Coalition has served the Hollywood community and the surrounding area since 1987. Every day of the year, the HFC serves a nightly meal to nearly 300 of Hollywood’s underserved community.
In addition to their hot meal program, the HFC serves as a hub for other food programs to facilitate thousands of pounds of food per day to underserved communities in the Los Angeles area. Every week, Jeff Kaley, from HFC, picks up and delivers back to their warehouse up to six pallets of food and beverages.
It’s partnerships such as these that help ensure that food is dispersed in a timely manner to those who need it.
