Food insecurity in Los Angeles and Ventura Counties is extraordinarily high.
Addressing the Need
FOOD Share is a nonprofit food bank dedicated to feeding, nourishing, and educating the hungry of Ventura County, educating the community on those who are hungry and why, and advocating a reduction of the root causes of hunger.
Food Forward is another nonprofit working across Los Angeles and Ventura Counties. Food Forward works closely with area farmers markets to glean leftover produce to provide to organizations feeding people in need.
Volunteers can directly affect the needs of Ventura and Los Angeles County by getting involved with one or both of these organizations.
