To support families in need, NBC4 is teaming up with Ralphs and Food 4 Less supermarkets throughout Southern California to help feed the hungry with the “Help 4 the Hungry” donation drive from November 19 to December 24. The need is urgent now due to the fire devastation in Malibu, Ventura and the San Fernando Valley that has impacted and displaced tens of thousands of people.
You can help by shopping at your Ralphs or Food 4 Less supermarket and make a donation of $5 or $10 at check-out. A $5 donation will provide 20 meals to an individual and $10 will provide 40 meals to an individual. One hundred percent of proceeds will go to regional food banks in LA, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino and Ventura counties to distribute thousands of pounds of food immediately. Visit Ralphs.com or Food4Less.com to find a store near you.
