A. Westside Food Bank’s mission is to distribute as much food as possible to local agencies with food assistance programs and to reduce food waste on the Westside of Los Angeles County. As the food bank warehouse for the Westside since 1981, they annually distribute nearly 4 million pounds of food to the food assistance programs of 65 Westside social service agencies. Every $1 raised from the SANTA Monica Pub Crawl is equal to four pounds of food – so each ticket can create 40 pounds of food to families in need. More info: www.wsfb.org
