Powerful Collaboration Creates Huge Hunger Relief Effort in LA

Wednesday June 10, 2020 by Carolyn

Like so many Angelenos, Austin Beutner and Anthony Pritzker were distressed that the Covid-19 pandemic had dramatically increased the food insecurity experienced by so many in the community. Government efforts were inadequate and slow. 

So, Beutner, superintendent of the LAUSD, and Anthony Pritzker, philanthropist and a member of one of the nation's most prominent families (Hyatt), decided to take action. It only took at 20-minute phone call between the long-time friends to create the charity L.A. Students Most in Need.

So impressed by the way in which so many Southern California nonprofit organizations and social enterprises have pivoted to address the consequences of the pandemic. 

Baby2Baby is one of them.

Since its inception in 2006, its mission has been to provide "children living in poverty, ages 0-12 years, with diapers, clothing, and all the basic necessities that every child needs."

You're in luck: LiveTalkLA's excellent programs are available online!

LiveTalksLA is one of the Southern California's top cultural offerings. 

Created by Ted Habte-Gabr 10 years ago, LiveTalksLA presents writers, filmmakers, chefs, artists, leaders, comedians, musicians and thought leaders in business and science in a variety of wonderful venues throughout the region. 

In view of the coronavirus pandemic, LiveTalksLA has suspended its in-person programming until medical authorities say that it is safe to congregate.

However, we are in luck!
