FACT

December 4, 2011

Food Access Coalition Team (FACT) – Their mission is to improve food access & security for low income families. We have a total population of about 9.9 million in L.A, 3 million of them are kids, a total 1.5 million live in or below poverty (more than half a million of them are kids). Eating Healthy on a Budget is a free resource provided by USDA (our government). Those who really need help can find a food pantry at L.A. Food Bank – With unemployment at 12% in L.A, the demand for food assistance continues to increase. The  L.A. Food Bank has been rated as a four star charity by Charity Navigator and has been awarded the “Best in America” seal from Local Independent Charities of America so you can donate with confidence (knowing that every dollar will make a difference).

Cal Fresh or SNAP (Better Food, Better Living) is another free resource. Check out 10 Steps to Help You Fill Your Grocery Bag Through SNAP. Find 100s of recipes with per serving cost of less than $.25. Head Start also has lots of information. 211 LA is a private, nonprofit  information and referral (I&R) service that helps people in L.A by providing free, confidential services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week in English, Spanish and more than 140 other languages. The LA Coalition to End Hunger & Homelessness (another great non-profit has close ties to the United Way.
