To Feed Each Other

As the lockdown orders went into effect last April, food shortages in working class homes became more prevalent. Urban Partners Los Angeles expanded their existing food bank to meet the needs of thousands of LA residents. Lines wrapped around several blocks, reminiscent of Great Depression Era food bank lines.

This series began as the coronavirus pandemic began to affect Los Angeles. Photos shown are from the Urban Partners Los Angeles Food Bank in Koreatown and Feeding The Frontlines in Oxnard. Both are mutual aid efforts organized to feed working class and farming communities.

A short documentary is embedded at the end.
