What We Aim To Solve
Food insecurity in Los Angeles County has continued to be pervasive. Continued increases in the cost of living, including and especially housing, coupled with stagnant wages, means that hundreds of thousands of families in our communities struggle to put food on the table. One in five people in Los Angeles County experience food insecurity, representing 20% of the population and affecting more than 2 million people. One in four children in Los Angeles County is food insecure.
