Los Angeles Regional Food Bank

Our vision is that no one goes hungry in Los Angeles County.

Pasadena resident Tony Collier is the founder of the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank and started the food banking concept in 1973 at the Grandview Foundation. Collier, a cook, received more food donations from local businesses than he anticipated, and shared them with other organizations helping the hungry. Four members of the community impressed with Collier’s work formed a voluntary Board of Directors and incorporated the Foodbank as an independent nonprofit organization.
