Westside Food Bank invites the public to attend "Hunger in Our Community", a panel discussion on local hunger, food insecurity and related issues on Friday, May 5, 2017 at 7pm. The event is part of the Los Angeles Times Food Bowl - a month long festival celebrating L.A.'s dynamic and influential food scene while promoting awareness about food waste and hunger.
"Hunger in Our Community" will take place inside Westside Food Bank's warehouse, located at 1710 22nd Street, Santa Monica, CA 90404. WSFB's Chief Development Officer Genevieve Riutort will moderate the panel comprised of Chef Derek Brandon Walker of the Mar Vista Restaurant and formerly with St. Joseph Center, Jared Call of California Food Policy Advocates, and WSFB's Executive Director Bruce Rankin. The discussion will center around the continued record high local need for food assistance, its causes and repercussions, the effect of food distribution on homelessness, food waste, nutrition as well as how public policy, businesses and nonprofit organizations can work together to address these issues and what we can expect in the coming months and years. Light refreshments will be served. $10 donation required for admission. Space is limited and advance reservations are required.

The Sugar & Stilettos Foundation raised a whopping $35,000 for us this year at The Sugar & Stilettos Evening of Gratitude 2016 event. Mr. Sugar & Stilettos 2015, Jere Burns, passed the tiara to Mr. Sugar & Stilettos 2016, Greg Germann, and a grand time was had by all.
