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.)View RSS feed Read more
