Planned Giving

Make a lasting gift in your will or trust.

Help end hunger with a future gift by designating Westside Food Bank as a beneficiary of your estate. When you include Westside Food Bank in your estate plan, your generosity:

  • Leaves a lasting legacy of your commitment to end hunger
  • Provides food to hungry families and individuals in Western Los Angeles County
