On behalf of Controller Ron Galperin, the Community Engagement team is proud to share our office’s updated Free Food in California map! Please click here to learn more about how this essential resource came to be.
L.A. Controller Ron Galperin just released this new statewide map of free food resources available to Californians. This is the only resource of its kind in California and shows more than 1,400 food banks, food pantries, emergency distribution centers, and other community resources providing free access to food across the state.
How to use the Free Food in California Map:
Users can find resources by typing their address into the search bar and choosing a search radius, or by clicking on a location near them on the map. Each dot on the map indicates the location of a separate resource site.
Users can click on a dot to view additional information including the name, address, and contact information. We recommend that anyone seeking assistance contact prospective sites before visiting to confirm hours and eligibility. Some locations may request that community members bring photo identification or other supporting documents when they visit.
Please reach out if you have any questions or feedback on the maps. Thank you as always for your engagement with the Controller’s office!
