|Food on Foot is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization (Tax-ID#31-1581053) dedicated to providing the poor and homeless of Los Angeles with nutritious meals, clothing, and assistance in the transition to employment and life off the streets. Food on Foot operates a weekly meal program every Sunday in Hollywood. Food on Foot began in March 1996 as one man's response to the hunger he witnessed among the poor and homeless of Hollywood. What initially began as the distribution of meals from the trunk of a car has grown through the dedication of its volunteers and now serves more than 200 meals each week to homeless, disabled, elderly and low-income adults and children. more about us >

Volunteer of the Week
Dorothy Edmed - $98 Club Member - 10/26/2014
FOF means to me, "There by the grace of God go I". I have had some really difficult times in my life but have had support to solider on. FOF is that support and encouragement for people that have no one to turn to in that time in their life. FOF also provides that weekly opportunity to feed the homeless on the streets of LA.
I like the encouragement, support and opportunity that FOF gives individuals to get back on their feet and living a normal productive life. I also enjoy the smiles and thanks received from those we feed.

Work for Food
Each Sunday afternoon 40-50 homeless and poor individuals participate in our trash clean up program. This is the first step in their attempt to increase confidence and ultimately obtain a full time job and housing. We are proud that so many have graduated our program and are now completely self-supporting and off all government assistance.Previous Work for Food Success Stories:
