It may be hard to imagine, but 16% of those living in LA don't know where there next meal is coming from. A large part of this is because these families may live in Food Deserts. Thanks to the map provided by the @USDA , we can see exactly where those neighborhoods are. In the case of this photo, green is not good. #foodoasisfacts
Happy Sunday! Last month @cnnmoney shared this incredible feature on Food Oasis, but more importantly shed light on the hundreds of thousands of Angelenos who are living in food deserts and whose youth are not actively exposed to fresh fruits and vegetables. At Food Oasis, we hope to provide the tools to empower communities to gain access to healthy foods and to raise awareness that we have a long way to go to provide food security for all. 📷: @thehumblefarmr
Can you imagine your kitchen tap running all day every for 9000 years? That's how much water is lost daily in California thanks to #foodwaste
Thanks CNNTech for raising awareness about Food Deserts and featuring Food Oasis's mission to connect those in need with healthy food resources in LA.
Live from today's Feeding the 5000 event! Had the opportunity to share a bit more about Food Oasis with the LA community.
Feeding the 5000 Los Angeles is on a mission to shine a light on global food waste by championing delicious and healthy alternatives.
Come meet our Food Oasis Family on May 4th at Feeding the 5000 LA! Feeding the 5000 is a communal feast made entirely out of fresh, quality food that would otherwise have been wasted. The event will take place in Pershing Square on May 4th, and is free and open to all. ⠀
Interested in volunteering and available between April 22nd and May 4th? Help chop food at the Feeding the 5000 Disco Chop party hosted by LA Kitchen on May 2nd; cook on May 3rd; and serve the delicious feast on May 4th. Sign up at buff.ly/2pOfhcj
