Sometimes the most essential things in life are hard to come by. Providing affordable and quality meals to hungry individuals and families in communities throughout Southern California and beyond is a service The Treasure Box takes very seriously. Its mission is to improve the quality of meal time and bring communities together, one Treasure Box at a time.

Nutritious and plentiful, each Treasure Box contains between 21 and 25 pounds of grocery-store quality frozen foods, including chicken, pork, beef, or seafood, as well as vegetables, fruit, a side dish and a dessert.
The Treasure Box offers three options for meal programs:
1. Basic Treasure Box

3. Hearty Protein Box (contains 10 to 12 pounds of protein)
