BRIDGING THE GAP BETWEEN NEED, EXCESS AND WASTE.
Nourish LA was started during the COVID19 pandemic by Natalie Flores, a passionate gardener, advocate, and urban farmer. She has connected those in need of food to those with excess through. food donations from all around the local area. Excess food from farms, community trees, gardens, and food that would have otherwise been thrown out by supermarkets, is used to feed those in need.
Natalie and her team of volunteers have feed over 3,000 people every weekend between both hub sites. They also pass out 1000’s of seedlings. As donations get larger so does the number of folks they feed.
Since March of 2020 Nourish LA/Nuestros Alimentos has diverted over millions of lbs of food from going to waste, given out an estimated tens of thousands of bags of food and have diverted thousands of lbs of compost to community gardens.
All with the help of neighbors and community members!
