|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 >

We have volunteer spaces available for our June servings
The May edition of our bi-monthly Footnotes newsletter [pdf] is now available!(05/19) Celebrate the warm weather by helping to distribute food and clothing on a Sunday in June. Advance registration is required. Food on Foot has a very unique program - Work for Food - where the homeless collect street trash to earn food each week. Many have graduated WFF after approximately three months and now have full-time jobs that enable them to pay for their housing and leave all government assistance. We have helped turn tax burdens into tax payers for the last 15 years. Read More:

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.
