    Help Foster Youth Students Address Food Insecurity

    Foster Nation’s Meal Nation program fights food insecurity for LA’s most vulnerable population - older foster youth. Many students don’t have access to the food resources they relied on before campus closures, and they have also lost critical income due to impacts of the pandemic. We know that having a meal is essential to educational success. Our goal is to ensure foster youth have at least one meal a day for 30-60 days, and the know-how to access public benefits like CalFresh in order to help them meet their basic needs beyond this program.
