“In moments like this, it is incumbent upon us as a community to band together and provide help where it is needed most,” said Chargers President of Business Operations A.G. Spanos.
“We’re honored to help the Food Bank provide some certainty and relief for those impacted by the Coronavirus crisis in what has become an increasingly uncertain time.”
The recent actions taken at the federal, state and local levels are needed to combat the spread of the Coronavirus have put a significant additional strain on local families and individuals.
According to the Food Bank, the donation will help them be able to help children and their families as children stay home from school, as well as seniors who are self-isolating and hourly workers who are experiencing interruptions to their schedules and paychecks.
The Chargers distribute food annually at their facility and contribute financially to the work of the Food Bank. Team members and staff also volunteer regularly to help glean food and pack boxes, the Food Bank said.
“The Los Angeles Chargers have been an incredible supporter of the Food Bank over the years, and this is yet another example of their tremendous commitment to their community,” said President and CEO, Michael Flood.
“We are humbled by this amazing gift, which will go a long way to help those who are hurting right now.”
The Food Bank is currently hiring temporary workers, utilizing the Mobile Food Pantries and is ensuring rigorous health protocols are maintained to continue safe service to vulnerable populations.

LOS ANGELES, Nov. 23, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The Los Angeles Regional Food Bank is joining NBC4/KNBC's 'Help 4 The Hungry' donation drive, returning for a third consecutive year to support food banks facing a greater than ever need this holiday season to help feed families in need. Demand has skyrocketed during the pandemic leaving neighborhoods and people across Southern California struggling with economic hardships, job losses and homelessness.
From November 23 through December 24, individuals can donate $1, $5, $10 or more at Ralphs and Food 4 Less stores upon checkout. People can also make donations by texting H4H to 41444 and follow the prompts. Donations of any amount are welcomed. All donations collected locally will benefit Los Angeles Regional Food Bank and other regional food banks in Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino and Ventura counties.
"The economic impact from the pandemic will be a long-term, outstanding problem, and the Help 4 the Hungry campaign will provide critical funds so the Food Bank can reach an unprecedented amount of food-insecure people who rely on the Food Bank," said Michael Flood, the Food Bank's President, and CEO. "The Food Bank is very thankful for the continued support of the NBC4, Ralphs and Food 4 Less teams and its community for helping its neighbors in need."
