AEG’s LA Galaxy Foundation joined the fight against hunger and food insecurity in Los Angeles through weeklong support of Los Angeles Regional Food Bank. Throughout the week of Oct. 9, LA Galaxy staff members and fans collected more than 700 pounds of food and prepared and distributed nearly 4,000 meals to children, families, seniors and individuals in need throughout the Los Angeles area.

On Monday, Oct. 9 the team kicked off its week-long efforts with LA Regional Food Bank meal distribution at Carson Senior Center, where LA Galaxy Star Squad and staff members prepared and distributed 900 meals to local senior citizens facing food insecurity based on household income. LA Galaxy volunteer work continued that Friday, as LA Galaxy staff members and fans visited the LA Regional Food Bank warehouse and packaged 3,000 meals distributed to local seniors and youth the following week.

Additionally, LA Galaxy Staff held a canned food drive benefiting LA Regional Food Bank open to LA Galaxy fans attending the Club’s final regular season match on Sunday, Oct. 15 at StubHub Center that resulted in the collection of 726 pounds of food (equal to 605 meals).
