RIVERSIDE, Calif. - This week, we're excited to bring you a special series where we have one goal in mind; in times of crisis and challenges, we come together, and we're better off for it. We are better together, and together we are going to get through this pandemic.
Feeding America Riverside | San Bernardino (FARSB) is leading the fight against hunger in the Inland Empire by providing food access, emergency relief, education, and advocacy for families in Riverside and San Bernardino Counties. FARSB is the primary source of food to over 250 local nonprofit organizations, distributing over two million pounds of food monthly to emergency food pantries, homeless shelters, soup kitchens, high-need elementary schools, senior centers, residential treatment centers, and after school programs.

With the help of these charity partners, FARSB makes up the largest hunger-relief organization in the Inland Empire, making food security a reality for over 1.2 million people every year. Every $1 donated to Feeding America Riverside|San Bernardino helps to provide up to 8 meals.
We spent the morning at Feeding America where we are seeing the need for food for families, as the number of people in need in these times has more than quadrupled.
Just one dollar will help serve eight meals.
