Change Ad Consent Do not sell my data The First Vegan Food Bank Launches in Los Angeles

Gwenna Hunter, an activist and advocate, has launched the very first vegan food bank in Los Angeles to tackle food insecurity while ensuring equality and food worthiness.

The food bank, Vegans of LA, launched in a collaboration with Hope On Union Food Bank and are partnering with vegan food companies to help provide plant-based products. Instead of plant-based food companies destroying intact but imperfect packaged items, Vegans of LA Food Bank will give them to individuals and people in need. They are also focused on fresh fruit and vegetables to bring food to people who may lack access due to their zip code.

Gwenna experienced a lack of accessibility to healthy foods growing up, and she knew that she wanted to help others have access to these things.

“Food worthiness is a human right. In providing plant-based foods to communities in need we empower them with new food choices and in turn we create a more sustainable world,” said Gwenna Hunter.

Vegans of LA will serve between 350 and 400 people in a single day, once a month, on the third Thursday morning at Hope On Union. To contact Gwenna Hunter to make contributions and donations, visit vegansofla.com.
