The Ralphs/Food 4 Less Foundation and United Way of Greater Los Angeles have teamed up to provide $100,000 to 13 agencies providing free food to hungry people in the county. The donation is part of the "Fighting Hunger 365 Days a Year" program, and comes at a time when food-providing agencies struggle most to feed the people they serve, said Ari Swiller, the foundation's executive director. "The problem of hunger exists 365 days a year," Swiller said.

OPINION

When the intersection at 1st Street and Grand Avenue in downtown Los Angeles was closed for more than a week of street parties to celebrate the opening of the Walt Disney Concert Hall, many thousands of commuters suffered miserably through detours and horrendous traffic jams. At most, the street closure should have been in effect for a day or two. It seems to me that high-ranking government officials and business leaders were so eager to pat each other on the back that they failed to show any concern for the thousands of people who were affected by the street closure.

They've had few places to skate since city officials banned skateboarding here 12 years ago and nowhere to hide from police officers enforcing the law. But now skateboarders will no longer have to break the rules by setting up makeshift wooden ramps in the street or at public parks. City Council members this week accepted a $100,000 check from the Ralphs Food 4 Less Foundation to build the city's first skateboard park and finally give the skateboarders some space.

A gift from Ralphs/Food 4 Less Foundation and one of the food chain's executives will sustain the life of the Walt Disney Concert Hall, sources close to the project said Wednesday. Concert hall project officials are expected to announce today a $15-million gift that will allow them to beat by more than two months a June 30 deadline for $52.3 million in fund-raising, imposed by Los Angeles County, owner of the land on which the hall will be built.
