Foothill Unity Center was founded in 1980 by Josephine Anderson in a borrowed church closet in Monrovia, California, to provide food to a few hungry families. Over the years the Center has become a major source of food, health services and crisis assistance for thousands of low-income families. In 1991, the Center was incorporated as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. In 2008 we were federally designated the Community Action Agency for the Foothill Area of Los Angeles County. Back in 2016 we dreamed of owning a larger building that would allow us to better serve neighbors in need, and began our Capital Campaign. In 2018, thanks to our amazing donors, we secured the initial funds to move into our own 10,000 square foot warehouse, with a walk-in refrigerator and freezer, allowing us to stock large amounts of frozen, fresh, canned and dried food which has played a major role in increasing operational efficiency and better meeting our growing needs.
