Organizations

Non-profit organizations have been the backbone of food distribution in Long Beach and surrounding areas. Here is the link to a list from a few months ago – you might consider donating to one you know. LB Post

The primary source of food for all these organizations comes from the Food Bank of Southern California – a non-profit. Funding for these operations is constantly challenged. They have little capacity to do extensive fundraising – let them know how you feel.
