Almost $400,000 raised and over 1.6 million meals provided since 2011

The Sugar & Stilettos Charitable Foundation raises funds for Los Angeles community food programs to help end the issues of hunger and food insecurity.


our history

In early 2009, Nanci Christopher put together a small baking club in the hopes of sharing family recipes and stories with close friends. Years later, this fondness for sweet treats would turn into a movement to help L.A. families in need.


our beneficiary

As a small grass-roots community organization, we’ve established a close relationship with The Westside Food Bank, the sole beneficiary of our efforts. We look forward to making a difference from our own backyard!


Why the Westside Food Bank?

The need for food assistance is at an all time high. One in six families now need help keeping food on the table, matching the nationwide average. In the U.S., 50 million people are unsure where their next meal is coming from with women, children, and minorities most impacted by food insecurity issues.

Annually, The Westside Food Bank distributes 4.5 million pounds of food to over 70 local social service agencies. For more information, visit there website.


A BIG thank you to everyone who makes this all possible!
