logoFood 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


Michelle Ghossn - $98 Club Member - 07/06/2014

At my first feeding I was blown away by what I witnessed. I heard heartwarming testimonies from some of the people who had graduated from the program. Before they found this program, they had gone through real hardships that would be challenging for anyone. I realized I was no different than them, and that some of these men and women had basically “slipped on a banana peel” and found themselves on the street. They deserved a second chance and Food on Foot is the wonderful organization that gave it to them. I signed up that day to be a $98 club member. I saw that my donation was going directly to the people in need and that support from club members was essential to the program.

What I really like about Food on Foot is the way the program is designed. The people in the program are only rewarded after hard work and service to others and after months and months of diligent hard work a person is given an apartment, a job, and a feeling of accomplishment. Food on Foot creates permanent change in people’s lives. I had never heard of a program so effective.

In the short time I have been volunteering, I have already gotten more than what I have given. The feeling you get from helping others is a gift in itself. Food on Foot truly does feed my soul and I am so grateful that I found it. I am especially honored to be Volunteer of the week. I want to give a big thanks to the amazing people who run the organization and to Jay who had a vision to change lives and passionately followed through with it.

We need volunteers to help serve food to the homeless and poor in Hollywood

Spend 90 minutes with us on a Sunday beginning at 3:15pm and help cheer up the lives of the homeless and poor in Hollywood.

Along with our food weekly food serving we have a very unique program called Work for Food where the homeless collect trash from the streets of Hollywood and earn food gift cards from fast food restaurants and grocery stores. Many have graduated our program and now have full-time jobs that enable them to pay for their own food and housing, and are no longer in need of any government assistance.

If you have any questions call us at 310-860-0022.

Food on Foot Wins $10,000

Over a 3-week period, FOF competed against 9 other California nonprofits and received the most online votes, winning a $10,000 grant for our Work for Food program through the Clearinghouse CDFI Challenge. We're so grateful to everyone who voted daily and spread the word to friends, family, and colleagues.

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.
