Viva la revolution!
Viva la revolution!
At Food Revolution LA, our mission is to fight for food justice by creating access to healthy food for everyone in the Los Angeles area. We rescue excess food that would otherwise go to waste and redistribute it to those in need. We provide hands-on education about nutrition for our youth. We work to build sustainable communities and make sure no one goes to bed hungry. Through education, advocacy and direct action, we strive to create long-term change and support those facing food insecurity. We are working towards a future in which all people can access nutritious food and enjoy a healthy lifestyle.
by donating food to those in need, we aim to help to remove the burden associated with food insecurity.
This allows members of the community to focus on other tasks, such as finding jobs or maintaining their educational progress, which can in turn create a more prosperous future for the entire community.
Moreover, by involving more people in the food exchange program, we are raising awareness of the issue of hunger in our communities and inspiring people to take action.
This will encourage more people to become involved in initiatives that strive to tackle poverty and food insecurity. By doing so, we are beginning to create more cohesive and unified communities.
At Food Revolution LA, we believe that food is a human right and that everyone should have access to healthy, affordable food. We work to fight for food justice by rescuing food in the Los Angeles area that would otherwise go to waste and distributing it to those in need.
We focus on making the maximum positive effort for our community. Our strategies include distributing a generous and nutritious allocation of weekly groceries, increasing awareness of our services, employing efforts to increase comfort and reduce stigma around using our services, create community collaboration, generating partnerships and increasing referrals to our program.
We serve low-income people, mainly families and seniors, who need emergency help to put food on the table.
The program actively solicits food from local food growers, retailers, wholesalers, and processors.
In addition, Food Revolution L.A. collects food donations from restaurants for immediate distribution to service programs.
Los Angeles County is growing, and a number of new families are entering the area to look for employment. Several programs exist to help transition these new families into the county.
Food Revolution L.A. is an important resource to these programs because we can respond quickly with one of the most important resources these families need. Food!
Our services improve the ability of families to care for children and achieve goals of self-sufficiency.
Contributing to Food Revolution L.A.’s program, is a small investment in comparison to the cost of ignoring the problem of hunger in the county and the influence it has on a number of health and crime issues.
Food scraps add to the growing waste generated in landfills. This is a problem because food and food waste that ends up in landfills contributes to climate change. Not only is wasted food a waste of the water and energy it took to produce that food, but food that sits in a landfill releases methane, a greenhouse gas that is more efficient and trapping heat than carbon dioxide. This is because in landfills, there’s no air and no natural way for the food to decompose. Wasting food contributes to 11% of the world’s total greenhouse gas emissions.
We need your help to make our goal of creating a food secure Los Angeles a reality. Your contributions will allow us to purchase an electric cargo van so that we can transport more food more efficiently and feed more people more times a week. Your donations are an invaluable resource in the fight for food justice and enable us to provide access to nutritious food for those most in need. Together, we can make a real impact on our city and ensure that everyone can enjoy the right to healthy, affordable food. We hope that you join us in this fight and help us achieve our goal of creating a better future for everyone in the South LA community
Your donation is important because it can help us sustain the food distribution and expand our capacity to serve even more people in need.
By contributing, you can help us acquire the necessary resources to continue rescuing food from surplus and left-over produce. Furthermore, with a cargo van, we will be able to efficiently transport food to the places that need it most, reaching more communities and alleviating the hunger and food insecurity in our area
Our services provide a safety net for those in need and enable them to lead a healthier lifestyle. We are proud of the work we do and strive to ensure our efforts are for the benefit of the community.
