Review for Westside Food Bank, Santa Monica, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have worked with many nonprofit organizations. Westside Food Bank is entirely focused on making their mission statement real. They work with a skeleton crew who each wear many hats. They have an excellent relationship with the community they serve. Their financials are squeeky clean. They do not make self-serving purchases. The money goes for the purpose intended. They work very hard at involving the community in food drives rather than relying on dwindling government sources. They make an incredible effort at providing the community with as much quality food as possible.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

There absolute integrity. Each person there works to the best of their considerable abilities. No one places a limit on how much time it takes to get the job done. They are truly selfless in working very hard to benefit their clients.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

the highest quality people. I have been volunteering there for years. I have never seen anyone there ever take an easy day. They are always at their best in finding ways to bring food in and distribute it to people who need help.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

make sure that no one in their service area ever goes hungry.
