Boobs4Food LA Holiday Happy Hour TweetUp Food Drive
LA Brought the Rain, Boobs4Food brought the Cans!
December in LA this year has proved to be a mix of tumultuous weather and it was definitely pouring with the clouds raining happiness on Boobs4Food for our first ever Boobs4Food LA Holiday Happy Hour and Food Drive. We organized this event in LA the week before our Boobs4Food SF event of similar nature – fighting hunger and getting together with our existing and new Boobs4Food supporters.
We held our Boobs4Food LA Happy Hour + Food Drive at the incredible Copa D’Oro Bar – a quintessential establishment that truly knows the meaning of a hand-crafted cocktail…and a hard to beat Happy Hour Drink List. With their $5 Happy Hour offerings of amazing libations such as the Gold Rush, Pisco Sour and Moscow Mule, we invited many of our friends to come out with their bounty of non-perishable foods to support LA Regional Food Bank during this holiday season. Los Angeles is often seen as a city of glitz and glamour yet few realize that many residents of LA County struggle alongside over 45 million Americans who are “food insecure” – meaning that they are deprived of daily access to adequate amounts of nutritious food, as noted by the LA Regional Food Bank press release in November.
With the help of our Boobs4Food supporters, we pulled together more non-perishables than we anticipated while having an amazing time catching up with old and new friends who had not yet had a chance to come out to one of our volunteer events since the inception of Boobs4Food this past summer. Since our start, Boobs4Food LA has devoted much of our Southern California efforts to support LA Regional Food Bank given it’s strength within the region and being one of the largest food banks in the United States. Through their organization and a network of over 500 charitable agencies, they supply enough food for 750,000 meals weekly in Los Angeles County. LA Regional Food Bank’s President and CEO Michael Flood has even noted that the demand at the food pantries served by the Food Bank is up approximately 34% percent since this time last year.
