Most Populated County in USA
Los Angeles County is home to one of the largest populations of any county in the nation (current estimate is 9.83 million residents). They are also home to one of the largest accounts of hunger.
It is estimated that 1 in 5 (~1.97 million) of their residents in Los Angeles County faces food insecurity. Hunger affects old and young alike. While fixed-income seniors, people with disabilities and low-income families are the most visible examples of people who struggle, hunger doesn’t stop there. Hunger affects all groups of people regardless of education level, employment status or ethnicity.
Due to the soaring costs of both housing and transportation in Los Angeles County, many people who work– even families with two incomes – often can’t make ends meet or put enough good food on the table.
The global pandemic and related economic fallout has created large numbers of people in this community who are brand new to food insecurity, and never imagined they would be in need of food assistance.
LA Mill Supporting!
Recognizing the enormous need and opportunity to contribute, 18 LA Mill team members volunteered at the LA County Food Bank to prepare 1,161 meal kits that will be delivered to seniors’ living in Los Angeles County area.
The Miller Milling team members supported at the Food Bank by assembling boxes, worked on an assembly line to fill the boxes with packaged goods and other non-perishable goods, conducted quality control on items being packaged, and finally prepared the boxes for delivery.
The Food Bank shift supervisor commented that our team worked extremely hard and with a very professional manner.
