AT THE WORLD HARVEST FOOD BANK THERE ARE NO QUESTIONS ASKED
Update March 12, 2014 I was very impressed by the World Harvest Food Bank in downtown
Los Angeles. They don't ask any questions. They don't want to know your income level, or if you are a citizen,
or how long you've been out of work or even if you have a job but are having trouble with your bills. They are there
to provide wholesome food and all they ask is that you give them a $30 (thirty dollars) donation -- or if you can't afford
that then just donate four hours of your time. And what you get for your donation of $30 or four hours is a large shopping
cart filled wih fresh foods including fruits and vegetables and staples, plus you get another large box of fresh produce and
staples such as cereals, tea, rice, soft drink plus you get another large box with as much fresh fruit or fresh vegetables
as you can eat. Your shopping cart can also be filled with fresh meats, packaged foods, loaves of bread products with
the famous brands, even bottled soft drinks and juices.
Most of the food is donated
by major food wholesalers and major supermarket chains. For example, while supermarkets are likely to be selling green
and yellow bananas in their stores -- the yellow bananas are donated to the World Harvest Food Bank.
Sometimes the shoppers at the World Harvest Food Bank are driving a Mercedes or sometimes a beat up family car that
has gone through three families. It doesn't matter -- no questions are asked.
World Harvest Food Bank is at 1014 West Venice Boulevard in downtown Los Angeles, and this is near Figueroa and the Los Angeles
Convention Center. Call them at (213) 746-2227 or go to www.WorldHarvestFoodBank.org for information. You'll find a very clean and friendly place to shop and you'll be amazed at the amount of quality
foods waiting to go home with you. The World Harvest Food Bank is a non-profit. Our original TV report is
below. Please note that they now ask for a donation of $30, and $25 was mentioned in the original report below.
