Asian Youth Center now able to provide more food for needy in the San Gabriel Valley

More food may soon be reaching the San Gabriel Valley's needy. On Friday morning the Asian Youth Center unveiled a new Titan truck that Nissan donated to help collect and distribute higher quantities of food. The nonprofit's Emergency Food Program provides grocery bags of healthy, nutritious food to struggling families once a month. They accept donations of non-perishable items, which are particularly in demand during the holiday season.

At a press conference Friday morning, Assemblyman Mike Eng joined representatives from AYC and Nissan and urged community members to give back.

Non-perishable food items for the AYC's Emergency Food DriveEng called hunger an epidemic in Los Angeles County. About half a million households in L.A. County go to sleep hungry, and nearly 10 percent of those households are in Alhambra and a large portion of the San Gabriel Valley, according to Eng. The Asian and Pacific Islander community is also heavily affected by hunger. In L.A. County 13 percent of Asians and 22 percent of Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders live in poverty, according to the 2011 American Community Survey.

"For every gift we put under the tree, we should put a box of food into a food bank," Eng said after the conference. "Food banks are very perilously short this time of the year. There are more young people, more pregnant women, more children that are homeless this year, that are hungry."

If you'd like to donate to the Emergency Food Drive, you can drop off non-perishable food items to the AYC at 100 W. Clary Ave., San Gabriel, Calif., 91776 or call (626) 309-0622 ext. 115 to arrange for the AYC to pick up your donation. If you are in need of food, you can go to the above address the third Thursday of each month starting at 9 a.m. Food distribution is first come, first serve and does not require identification.
