After four weeks of fundraising during the month of May, the 8th annual Food From the Bar campaign has come to a close. Sixty-eight firms throughout Los Angeles County partook in this year’s event, bringing in over 5,000 pounds of food, working 722 volunteer shifts at the Los Angeles Regional Food Banks, and raising $42,600 dollars, providing more than 1.6 million meals to those suffering from food insecurity.
Olivarez Madruga is proud to have ranked as a Silver Partner in its first year participating in the campaign, raising the equivalent of 9,120 meals. Volunteering at the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank was an informative, enjoyable, and fulfilling experience for all involved. OM looks forward to making Food From the Bar an annual tradition.
