I have found that Heart of Compassion Distributrion has truly lived up to its stated mission "to fight hunger and feed hope to empower the urban poor." For the past twenty years now this non profit charity has grown from modest beginning to have become one of the largest food banks and distribution centers in Southern California. Just last year, Heart of Compassion distributed over 18 million pounds of food and items of necessity to the poorest of those in our community. This distribution has a net vaue of over 33 million dollars. Amazingly, Heart of Compassion was able to accomplish this feat on an operating budget of less than $360,000. They have no paid staff but operate entirely by utilizing a network of hundreds of highly passionate volunteers who give selflessly of themselves logging in more than 90,000 work hours annually. More than 306,000 families benefit from this charity each year or over 1 million 300 thousand of the most impoverished individuals who include the homeless, veterans,the disabled, senior citezens and children. Heart of Compassion ihas truly demonstrated the Father's Heart meeting the needs of those amongst us who need help the most. Kudos to Heart of Compassion! Help fund this non profit today so that they may continue this great work tomorrow!

They are providing free food and other essential items to those in need. HOC distributes food through 147 non-profit organizations and fed over 1 million people last year.Everyone is a volunteer nobody gets paid.In 2008 volunteers donated in excess of 75,000 hours helping to feed people.At each Event they serve between 2,000 and 5,500 people, thats about 200,000 lbs of food. If you want to help a good cause or need help yourself go to Heart of Compassion!!!
