1. Market Match Legislation Now in State Assembly

Friends of Hunger Action LA are familiar with the Market Match program, which we’re now operating at 16 markets with the recent addition of Vermont Village, La Cienega, Compton and Valinda (and other areas on the waiting list––we’re not forgetting you, SF Valley!) Newly proposed state legislation could be a huge boost to Market Match not only in LA where HALA and SEE-LA are  doing the program, but all over the state, where 14 other organizations from Bakersfield to Fresno to the Bay to Humboldt are running Market Match (with coordination by The Ecology Center.)

Anti Poverty Training

A Golden Opportunity for All Californians!
Hunger Action LA Invites You to A Free -Anti-Poverty Advocacy Training

Punishing people living in extreme poverty by
withholding access to food and other assistance
is WRONG!

The training will discuss proposed policies designed to help
poor people in California and how you can speak to elected
officials, reporters, and friends & family about them:

  • Lifting the Lifetime Ban on Food Benefits for Non-violent
    Drug Felonies (SB 1029)
  • Restoring the State Supplement Payment (SSP) Cost of Living
    Adjustments (COLA) for seniors and disabled
  • Other proposals to fight poverty and improve access to healthy food.
