Foodbank’s New BackPack Program
Targets School Children Most at Risk
The Los Angeles Regional Foodbank
has launched its new BackPack
Program. The program is designed to
provide balanced meals to very low
income school children. The children
in this program are on the free school
lunch program during the week, but
during the weekends they are left
without access to nutritious food.
The back packs are distributed
every other Friday. The children
for the program are chosen by the
school principals based on need and
recommendations from teachers.
The BackPack Program provides
enough food for six meals to help
ensure the children have access to food
over the weekend. Items in the back
pack usually include a grain cereal,
peanut butter, granola bars, fruit juice
and coupons for free milk, produce,
and bread.
Many studies show that lack of

American Idol’s Simon Cowell visits the
Foodbank as part of “Idol Gives Back”
April 24, 2007 was the launch of
American Idol’s “Idol Gives Back”
charity campaign. The number one
ranked TV show chose hunger relief in
America as one of its beneficiaries of
the nearly $70 million in funds it has
raised to date.
The
Los Angeles
Regional
Foodbank, an affiliate member of
America’s Second Harvest - the
Nation’s Foodbank Network, was one
of the facilities that American Idol
judge Simon Cowell visited to see firsthand the efforts being made to fight the
growing hunger problem in the United
States.
Cowell was awestruck by the
enormity of the need and he stated that
he “had no idea this kind of problem
existed in America.”
For most of
us, skipping
a meal is a
choice. For
thousands
of other Los
Angeles
County
residents,
skipping
a meal is a decision
beyond their control not just once in a while,
but every day.
To help, the Los Angeles Regional Foodbank
provides food for over
500,000 meals each
week.
So if you want to free
local families and individuals from hunger,
support the Foodbank’s
“Freedom From Hunger”
campaign today.
The summer is a time
of year when the Foodbank receives less support than necessary
to meet the need for
emergency food assistance. So your participation in this campaign
is especially critical.

New Backpack Program (Continued from page 1)
nutritious food during a child’s
development can affect their ability
to learn.
Currently there are two schools
participating in the program. Both
schools selected to participate
in the program are in the most
impoverished parts of Los Angeles
County.
The program is supported by
private and corporate donations.
Donors include Ralphs, County
Supervisor Yvonne Burke’s office
and an anonymous foundation.
The BackPack Program is
scheduled to increase its enrollment
at current schools and then expand out
to other high risk schools throughout
the county. Many schools are
excited about the prospect of the
program expanding through the
district.

How to Make a Good Gift Better
More and more people are taking advantage of the many
gift-planning options available today. These include bequests
by will, revocable trusts, gift annuities, charitable trusts, gifts
of securities and real estate, in-kind gifts, endowment giving
and other possibilities.
Some gifts can be made to benefit the Foodbank now
(current gifts) and others can be made now to benefit the
Foodbank later (deferred gifts). Some gift arrangements
are revocable (you can change your mind); others are
irrevocable.
A planned gift usually requires more thought than a quick
check written against monthly income. These gifts often
come out of estate assets. You have to consider the impact
of your gift on your overall financial condition. Can you
afford a sizable gift at this time, or should you make it later
by will? What is the best way to make this gift? Do you need
temporary or lifetime income from your gift arrangement?
What are the tax implications?
Careful planning can actually make a good gift better.
Consider these potential benefits of planning your gift:
• Maximize the size of your gift.
• Obtain life income from your gift.
• Optimize the tax-related benefits.
• Tailor your gift to a specific need.
• Protect yourself from hasty decisions.
• Increase your personal satisfaction.
Help For You
The Foodbank wants to help you make a good gift better.
Our Development Director, Nancy S. Nagel, can assist you
in finding the best gift plan for your needs.
For further information about charitable gift planning, call
Ms. Nagel in the Foodbank’s Development office at (323)
234-3030 extension 147. You can also request information
by email at [email protected] For more information

Partners Preventing Hunger - Million Meal Challange
It’s a challenge some may believe impossible. We know with
your help this is possible.
We ask you to become a member of Partners Preventing
Hunger today. With your membership commitment over the
next few months, we can most assuredly meet this year’s
Partners challenge - One Million Meals in 2007.
We know meeting this challenge is possible because we’ve
done it before.
Though many of the families and individuals we helped last
year are now back on their feet, others have fallen on hard times.
That means the time is now to renew our commitment to those
who are going to need help in the challenging months ahead.

You can help by joining Partners Preventing Hunger
today.
Every $1 of support you commit to helps the Foodbank
distribute enough food for 5 full meals! That’s thanks to
our other valuable partnerships with surplus food donors,
enabling us to acquire food at a fraction of what it would
cost in a store.
With resources like that, the “million meal” mark is most
certainly within our reach.

Foodbank’s 4th Annual Wine Tasting a Success
Raising over $160,000.
The Foodbank’s annual wine tasting was once again
held at the beautiful Greystone Mansion in Beverly
Hills. This year’s sold-out event was a success due in
large part to help and sponsorship from Ralphs. Ralphs
brought in representatives from some of the best wineries in California and throughout the world, plus many
specialty food items.
This year’s silent auction at the wine tasting provided
some great items including celebrity autographed items,
original paintings, and reserve lots and vintages, plus
impressive magnums from the wineries.
This year’s
tasting also saw
the
addition
of a few new
things.
The
event site was
expanded to include a larger
portion of the
grounds to make room for more wineries and the addition of select champagnes, port, and two micro brew

On June 26, players from the Los Angeles Galaxy Major

After the dust settled
in the five-minute race,
the Avengers football
players had collected $3,590, while the Galaxy’s soccer players collected $5,563 worth of groceries to win
the dash. The Avengers players requested a rematch for
next year.
Albertsons added $30,000 to the total collected to
bring the amount of the donation to the Foodbank to
$39,153.
The event also brought media attention to the growing hunger problem in Los Angeles County. The event
was covered by KNBC, KCAL, KMEX and the Daily

HUNGER ACTION UPDATE.....
Feeding America’s Families Act (H.R. 2129)
The McGovern/Emerson “Feeding America’s Families Act”
(H.R. 2129) would make a significant difference for families
facing a constant struggle against hunger by improving access
to the Food Stamp Program, increasing the adequacy of food
stamp benefits, and bolstering the emergency food assistance
system. It invests $20 billion in new five-year funding.
Below are some of the items the new act would address:
Increase Food Stamp Benefit Levels
1) Rolls back the two significant across the board cuts
enacted in 1996. 2) Help vulnerable people stuck at the
monthly minimum benefit level (raising it from $10 to $32)
Emergency Feeding and Other Programs
1) Increase to $250 million a year and index for inflation
mandatory funding for The Emergency Food Assistance Program
(TEFAP); provide extra money for transportation of perishable
food.
2) Reauthorize the Commodity Supplemental Food Program
(CSFP), reauthorize the Food Distribution Program on Indian
Reservations (FDPIR); authorize and fund the Bill Emerson
National Hunger Fellows and Mickey Leland International
Hunger Fellows Program; reauthorize and index for inflation
Community Food Security project grants; establish grants for
community-based anti-hunger efforts.
Please call your local member of congress and ask them to
support the Feeding America’s Families Act.
Remember to check our web site at www.lafoodbank.org for postings of Hunger Action Updates
