Food insecurity is a major concern for low-income families in Los Angeles, and paired with the high cost of living, the burden is truly an unthinkable weight to bear – especially for those with young children. To lighten this load, each month Tzu Chi volunteers set out in our Mobile Food Pantry with love in their hearts to prepare and distribute fresh food for these families living in extreme poverty. Collaborating with local farms and food banks to collect fresh produce and grains, we organize the supplies into boxes which can feed a family for a week. Please join us in making a positive difference by signing up as a volunteer today. By delivering your care in person, your assistance will provide more than the ability to make ends meet – you’ll be giving those who struggle the love and care they deserve, and the knowledge that their Tzu Chi family is there for them.
