LA County Provides Information on Services to the Immigrant Community, Wednesday 5/27, 2:30PM
|FOOD SECURITY: ENSURING THAT NO FAMILY GOES TO BED HUNGRY:
|With a population of more than 10 million residents, Los Angeles County is home to the largest population of any county in the nation. Sadly, we are also home to an estimated 2 million people who live with food insecurity, which means that one in five people who live here may not know where their next meal is coming from.
Hunger affects old, young, and entire families alike. While fixed-income seniors, people with disabilities and low-income families are the most visible examples of people who struggle, hunger affects all groups of people regardless of education level, employment status or ethnicity. Worse yet, the coronavirus pandemic has disproportionately impacted lower-income communities, including immigrants and their families who are often reluctant to receive public assistance due to fear that doing so will affect their immigration status. But no one should go to bed hungry, regardless of immigration status.
While the County and its partners are working hard to provide food and wraparound support services to vulnerable residents, we need the help of trusted partners like the media and community stakeholders to inform immigrants about food resources and wraparound services available to them and their families.
Representatives of the media and community organizations that serve immigrants and their families should join this press conference to learn and ask questions about food resources and wraparound services available to seniors, children and families, irrespective of their immigration status.
WHEN: **Wednesday, May 27**
