Our organization receives financial support, food, and supplies from local organizations, businesses, foundations, community groups, churches, restaurants, and individuals. Our clients pay nothing. Food distributions are free to all our clients. Now with the support of our partners, we feed over 1,000 individuals and families every month.

AFS is a blessing in my life, the need not to worry about getting food is great. They are there every week with great selections and friendly service, also offer me nutrition classes and I learn something new every time. I am grateful for them being there, I know I can count on them to be able to grab my food and go. I hope more programs are available for all, coming from a Cancer & Stroke Survivor. Big Thank You.

AFS is an amazing organization that helps those who are in need acquire the necessary nutrition to stay healthy, and happy. They have helped countless individuals including some of my dearest friends from going hungry. People deal with so much in their lives; the last thing they need to worry about is food. Thank you AFS for the amazing work you do for the Long Beach community. You are such an asset!

I am so grateful to the program for providing me with quality groceries that I couldn’t otherwise afford while meeting other essential obligations. Although it is a huge weight off of my shoulders my pride made it initially hard for me to accept the assistance. However, Shana and her staff are warm and welcoming at put me at ease. I eat well every day! This is a wonderful service! ❤️
