The holidays are upon us, and many in Southern California are unfortunately suffering from food insecurity. 

“Los Angeles County is home to one of the largest populations of any county in the nation. We are also home to one of the largest accounts of hunger. It is estimated that 1 in 5 of our neighbors in Los Angeles County faces food insecurity,” the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank reports

KTLA hosted a “5 Live Food Drive” at L.A. Live on Sunday from 7 a.m. until noon at the L.A. Kings Holiday Ice Rink at Xbox Plaza.

Every can of food collected and every dollar donated will go directly to the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank because no one should go hungry in L.A. County.
