Central Neighborhood Health Foundation Food Pantry Opening
Central Neighborhood Health Foundation and Anthem Blue Shield are partnering to provide food for hundreds within Metro Los Angeles. The Central Neighborhood Health Foundation Food Pantry will provide foods that comprise the Five Food Groups to feed people in need.
About one out of five Los Angeles County households has experienced food insecurity. Hunger affects old and young alike. Los Angeles County rents have increased by nearly thirty-two percent since 2000, food insecurity has increased twenty-nine percent since 2002. Nearly a third of lower-income households wonder where their next meal will come from; incomes have decreased about three percent, and there's approximately 59,000 homeless, a 12 percent increase from 2018, according to L.A.H.SA.
Lower-income county residents ages 30 to 49 are the most likely to experience food insecurity. The result is greater health problems, such as diabetes and hypertension as a result of purchasing higher-calorie, lower-nutrient foods that are also lower-priced.
Our call to action is to inform community stakeholders and recruit volunteers in our efforts to fight against food insecurity.
