This Is One Dot, and It Represents One Person

This Is One Dot, and It Represents One Person

This is one dot, and it represents one person struggling with food insecurity.

This one dot might represent Mary, someone we met at the Los Angeles Mission who was homeless a year prior, but thanks to help provided by the Food Bank and the LA Mission, she’s getting back on her feet. This might be Frank, a United States Veteran, or Irma, a part-time teacher who lives with her mother and two children. This dot represents someone living in our community – one of our neighbors.

This is 600 dots, and they represent the number of charities that the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank provides food for as of 2019.

This is 2,000,000 dots. Each one represents one human being in LA County who currently faces food insecurity. In a county that 10,160,000 people call home, 1 in 5 people don’t have reliable access to a sufficient quantity of affordable, nutritious food.
