Learn About The L.A. Kitchen

L.A. Bites Hunger founder Jo Stougaard wrote this article for the L.A. Times.

The L.A. Kitchen is a nonprofit facility located in L.A.’s Eastside that recovers fresh fruit and vegetables to be used in a culinary arts job-training program for former inmates and young adults leaving the foster care system. They also create healthy meals for low-income seniors. In case you missed the print edition on Saturday, the online link is here.

L.A. Bites Hunger will be organizing volunteer days at the L.A. Kitchen. Please comment with your email if you’d like more information.

Celebrate 50 Years of Food Stamps

#snap4SNAP (via Center For Hunger Free Communities)

Fifty years ago America found it utterly appalling that hunger existed in our country – so horrific that people came together and legislators reached across the aisle to do something about it. To mark this important anniversary, on October 30th community members, advocates, and organizations will take to social media to talk about the importance of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly Food Stamps). 

Join in the conversation by tweeting and posting pictures and statements of what SNAP means to you with the hashtag #snap4SNAP.

The #snap4SNAP campaign aims to illuminate the real life experiences of SNAP recipients and give people a platform to talk about the program.  By using social media we can bring a dose of reality to conversation around SNAP.
