Market Match Program
Join Hunger Action LA (HALA) as we award people, organizations, and companies whose work meets with our mission at our annual dinner this November.
The “Champions Against Hunger and Poverty” dinner will take place on Thursday November 16, 2017 at Kavar Banquet Hall, 4777 Santa Monica Blvd, LA 90029. Funds raised for this event will go towards the support of bonus food vouchers for low income consumers through the Market Match program at 24 Farmers Markets. Over 10,000 people were served through the program this year. Funding also supports HALA’s training and advocacy for the community on nutrition, food issues and policies; and the publication of The People’s Guide, a 72 page booklet helping those trying to get through hard times.
More than 1.4 million people suffer from food insecurity in Los Angeles County. Nearly 2 million of people living in Los Angeles are below the poverty line. Hunger Action LA’s mission is to end hunger and promote healthy eating through community education, outreach, networking, and empowerment of low income people to speak on issues that affect their lives directly.
