Local 871 Food Drive

Local 871 Food Drive
Organized by the Local871 Community Services Committee
Supporting the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank


Join Local 871 in supporting our brothers and sisters in Los Angeles!

This is a trying time for all, but even more so for those who are having difficulty financially, and the food banks have never had a greater demand. This pandemic has hit us all, stopping productions and the industry we all depend on. In addition, low-income communities, the homeless, seniors, and families with children have been hit especially hard. 

By donating you are feeding our own IATSE Members and providing nutritious meals to so many of our neighbors in need.

We’ve set up two ways to give – you can donate food at our physical food drive June 22-24 (see detail below)  or you can donate money (through June 24) at our Virtual Food Drive online: Charity.gofundme.com/local-871


All donations go directly to the LA Food Bank to feed families in need.
