Feeding America Riverside | San Bernardino (FARSB) is leading the fight against hunger in the Inland Empire by providing food access, emergency relief, education, and advocacy for families in Riverside and San Bernardino Counties. FARSB opened in 1980 as Survive Food Bank in response to the increasing concern about the dual problems of hunger and food waste in the Inland Empire. Today, FARSB is the primary source of food to over 250 local nonprofit organizations, distributing over two million pounds of food monthly to emergency food pantries, homeless shelters, soup kitchens, high-need elementary schools, senior centers, residential treatment centers, and after school programs. With the help of these charity partners, FARSB makes up the largest hunger-relief organization in the Inland Empire, making food security a reality for over 1.2 million people every year.
Addressing Us In the Media
We are to be referred to as:

We kindly ask that you recognize us, your local food bank, in all acknowledgments, as noted above. Addressing "Feeding America" without the "Riverside | San Bernardino" gives acknowledgment to the national organization in Chicago and not us, which causes donor confusion and often results in donations being sent to the wrong location. Thank you for understanding. Our logo can be found here.
All press releases and/or promotional items using the Feeding America Riverside | San Bernardino logo must be approved by our communications team. Please send your request, along with the signed Logo Usage Agreement to Carolyn Solar or Jocelyn Meza before making any acknowledgments public.
