Since 1973, the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank has worked to mobilize resources in the community to alleviate hunger. Dr. Jeanna Kindle is the Chief Product Acquisitions Officer. We will be talking about how the LA Regional Food Bank is making a difference in the community they serve. During these very difficult times, their services are more important than ever.
HUNGER HAS MANY FACES
"Community support enables the Food Bank to serve more than 300,000 people every month. Approximately one-quarter of our food goes to children, and roughly one-fifth ends up in the hands of older adults. It is estimated that only 10% of our food goes to the homeless, but this is an important population for us. The majority of our food goes to low-income families and individuals who sometimes struggle to make ends meet in this expensive location that we all call home."
