FOX Corporation donates $100,000 of food to Los Angeles Regional Food Bank

Behind some of these smiling faces are grumbling tummies. Many of these children worry about what they're going to eat over the weekend.

That is, until, the FOX Corporation stepped in and donated $100,000 worth of food to the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank.

On Fridays, the volunteers and staff – rocking the green shirts and masks – pack boxes of non-perishable goods and then deliver the meals to kids at two schools: Compton United's Mayo Elementary School and LAUSD's Main Street Elementary Schools. The kids are then able to take the food home to their families.

FOX 11's Hailey Winslow caught up with one of the volunteers at the food bank.

On Fridays, the volunteers and staff deliver these meals to kids at two schools – Compton Unified’s Mayo Elementary and LAUSD’s Main Street Elementary, to take home to their parents and siblings.

"I have lots of time," said Kevin Daley, a volunteer. "I’m retired and I feel it’s a good way to pay back to society to help people in need and it makes me feel good too."

The program, FOX for Students, feeds a total of 400 children and their families every Saturday and Sunday for an entire year.

"It takes an army of volunteers. It takes a community of support and we’re just so grateful to see them light up when they get this food because they know they’re going to have something to eat over the weekend," said Los Angeles Regional Food Bank Chief Development Officer Roger Castle.

Castle thanked the community for providing the much-needed help.

"We rely on private support. We wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for the generous support of individuals, foundations and corporations in our community so we truly appreciate what FOX has done to make sure these kids go home on the weekends with food to eat," Castle said.
