Hunger remains a pressing issue in Los Angeles County, affecting thousands of families and individuals. Despite the area’s wealth and resources, many residents face food insecurity, struggling to put nutritious meals on their tables. At Christy’s Foundation, we are committed to tackling this challenge head-on through our Food Relief Program.

The Reality of Hunger in LA County

Los Angeles County is home to a diverse population, but the stark contrast between affluence and poverty is evident. According to recent statistics, nearly 1 in 8 people in LA County experience food insecurity. This means that countless families, children, seniors, and individuals are uncertain about where their next meal will come from. The economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has only exacerbated this issue, with many households still reeling from job losses and reduced incomes.

Christy’s Foundation’s Response

Understanding the gravity of the situation, Christy’s Foundation has intensified its efforts to provide reliable food assistance to those in need. Our Food Relief Program is a lifeline for many, offering free groceries and nutritious meals to help alleviate the burden of hunger.

Our Weekly Distributions

To ensure consistent support, we host weekly grocery giveaways every Wednesday at 12 PM at 100 W Broadway Suite 120, Glendale, CA. Additionally, every other Thursday at 12 PM, we hold distributions at the Rose Goldwater Community Center, Westfield Topanga, 21710 Vanowen St, Canoga Park, CA 91303. We are also excited to expand our services with a new location opening soon at Northridge Mall.

Thanksgiving Turkey Giveaway

As part of our commitment to the community, we also organize an annual Thanksgiving turkey giveaway. This year, we aim to distribute over 500 turkeys across three locations. Join us on November 13th in Glendale and November 14th in Topanga for this special event, ensuring that every family can celebrate the holiday with a hearty meal.
