A Community in Need
The food insecurity rate in the Imperial County is estimated to be 17% for all residents. Tragically, it is 33% for Imperial County children. These rates remain one of the worst in the nation and the highest for childhood hunger in the state of California.
We know that alleviating hunger can strengthen the community as a whole. If people have enough nutritious food to eat then kids learn more at school, people are sick less often, workers are more productive, crime declines and the cycle of poverty can end its vicious spiral.
Our aim is to ensure all residents have access to nutritionally valuable food.
