PRESS RELEASES & MEDIA

On September 28, 2017, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health released a new report on the state of food insecurity in the county. More than half a million households earning less than 300% of the federal poverty level (FPL) are food insecure, which means many people face barriers purchasing nutritional foods at some time during the year. The report includes a series of recommendations for multi-sector partnership and innovation to increase access to healthy foods.
