Tonight at 7pm Pacific Time, Angelenos will ask a fifth question: Why on this night are millions of people going hungry?
With 1 in every 8 Angelenos experiencing food insecurity and 1 in 10 Angelenos using a food bank in 2009, Los Angeles is now known as the “hunger capital” of the United States.
Hosted by Valley Beth Shalom (VBS) in Encino, several major LA Jewish organizations are highlighting this critical issue by organizing the first ever, nondenominational, open to the community LA HUNGER SEDER 2010. Along with VBS as sponsors are Sinai Temple, the Jewish Federation, Mazon, SOVA, the Progressive Jewish Alliance, Fed Up With Hunger, the Jewish Journal and others.
At 7pm Pacific Time you can watch a live feed presented by the Jewish Journal. Just click on LA HUNGER SEDER 2010.
What would it take to feed all those hungry people?
