Moment of Good
Regional Food Banks
COVID-19 has continued to cause struggle for vulnerable families to make ends meet as the health and economic crisis persists. Local food banks exist to help distribute much needed food and other essentials to children, seniors, families and other individuals in need.
While we are busy sharing recipes and food stories, we also don't want to to forget and feel it important to give awareness to the fact that an estimated 2 million people in Los Angeles County live with food insecurity, which means 1 in 5 people who live here may not know where their next meal is coming from. Organizations like the LA Food Bank here are busy mobilizing resources to help alleviate hunger in our communities. That number is staggering when you look to the United States as a whole - latest statisitics counted 37 million (over 11% of our population) experience food insecurity and we all know that can only be increasing with the impact of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic this year. Globally, the numbers are even more staggering - over 800 million (that's 1 in 9) do not get enough to eat or are malnourished. We are so grateful these groups exist to work on fighting hunger and to help those especially in need right now.
