For families already struggling to make ends meet, the summer is a time of food insecurity. Make a $5 donation now to Stop Summer Hunger! Help us raise $3,000 by the end of August.

Just $5 would buy 3 jars of natural sugar-free peanut butter for our families. Peanut butter with its long shelf life is always in demand.

Even if you're not able to make a monetary donation, please click "Share" to spread the word about MEND and our various programs. We're so much more than a Foodbank!

Together, we can STOP SUMMER HUNGER. Thank you for your help!

MEND - Meet Each Need with Dignity, which serves as many as 49,000 poverty-level clients each month while remarkably keeping operating costs to less than 6%, is the largest, most efficient and most comprehensive poverty-relief organization in the San Fernando Valley. MEND takes a holistic approach to relieve the effects of poverty by providing basic human needs while giving clients the tools, education, training, support and opportunities that foster self-reliance.

MEND was born as a volunteer-powered organization four decades ago in a garage in suburban LA, and today benefits from the assistance of more than 4400 volunteers (and only 29 staff) to implement its vast array of programs that provide food; clothing; medical, dental and vision care; job training; classes for adults in English as a Second Language, literacy, computers, office skills, sewing and parenting; math, reading and science tutoring for kids; showers and other services for the homeless; the new home garden training program that helps families grow their own food; and an annual Christmas Basket Program for 1400 pre-screened families in need.
