Latino Food Insecurity is Highest During Winter Months.

We are lucky to live in a nation filled with such rich ethnic diversity and varied opportunities for growth, yet it is clear that certain ethnic groups have vastly different experiences. For example, 26.9% of Latino households experience food insecurity compared to the national average of 14.7%. This problem is even further exacerbated in the winter months as many Latinos experience seasonal unemployment.

Left unaddressed, the hunger problem, particularly among Lati- nos, is only expected to get worse, especially as we move into the colder months of winter. This is one reason why Green Menu is working so hard toward food equity so that everyone, no matter their race or financial circumstances, can have access to healthy food for their families.

Last week, Green Menu made a donation of 600 pounds of plant-based proteins to Faro De Luz Food Bank which serves the Latino community facing food insecurity. We gratefully thank Food Cycle LA for facilitating this donation and for aiding us to fulfill our mission of easing hunger while promoting human and environmental health.

美國是多元文化種族的國家,雖然是可以得到多方面成長的機會,但同時每個群體所經歷的生活也會截然不同。例如,26.9%的墨西哥裔家庭經歷了糧食不安全狀況,而全國平均水平為14.7%。由於他們經歷了季節性的失業,每到進入冬季較冷的月份時,就會產生飢餓問題。

Green Menu希望透過食物平均分配,關心到每個種族或經濟狀況有問題的家庭,同時讓他們也能獲得健康的食物。上週一Green Menu在感恩節之前,捐贈了600磅植物性蛋白質食物給Faro De Luz Food Bank,該食品銀行是為糧食缺乏安全的墨西哥裔社區提供服務。另外我們也非常感謝Food Cycle LA促進了這一捐贈活動,並幫助我們履行了減輕飢餓,促進人類和環境健康的使命。
