To support families in need of food, NBC4 teamed 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, which raised $400,000, the equivalent of over 1.5 million meals.
Individuals helped families by shopping at Ralphs or Food 4 Less supermarkets and made a donation of $5 or $10 at check-out. One hundred percent of proceeds will go to Feeding America Riverside & San Bernardino, FOOD Share Ventura, Los Angeles Regional Food Bank and Second Harvest Orange County.
