Hunger has no boundaries. It affects every community and exists everywhere in the country.
According to current Regional Los Angeles Food Bank’s report, 1,400,000 people in Los Angeles County are affected by hunger. Hunger affects all groups of people regardless of education level, employment status or ethnicity. Due to the soaring costs of both housing and transportation in Los Angeles County, many people who work, even families with two incomes, often cannot make ends meet or put enough good food on the table.
Last year, Catholic Charities provided over 500,000 food services consisting of bags of groceries, sack lunches, prepared meals and food distribution to low-income individuals and families.
