Today, the LA City Council voted in favor of donating surplus food to food banks, homeless shelters, and other organizations that assist those in need. During the press conference earlier this morning, Councilman Jose Huizar explained the reasoning for the decision. “It helps the city reduce waste, and secondly puts food on the tables of families who are going hungry each day here in the city of Los Angeles.”
We are so grateful for this new policy that will help us fulfill some of our needs as we face increasing numbers of people coming to us for meals, shelter, and assistance. As always, we appreciate your continued support – we can’t do it without you!
