The Food Bank relies on a network of more than 600 partner agencies to distribute food to people experiencing hunger in Los Angeles County. These agencies are soup kitchens, pantries, shelters, community centers, senior centers, churches, schools and other organizations that receive food from the Food Bank and then distribute it in their local communities to those in need.

Agencies are responsible for organizing, staffing, and leading their distributions, and many of them would benefit from the help of volunteers.
