|What:||Since March of 1996, Food on Foot has operated as a volunteer-based, non-profit organization providing hot, nutritious chicken dinners, snacks (fresh fruit, carrots, granola bars and bread), and drinks (bottled water and milk) to as many as 250 homeless and poor individuals and families each week. During our weekly meal service each Sunday in Hollywood, we also distribute gently used clothing and other essentials. Our target population includes individuals of all ages, from toddlers to seniors, as well as the disabled and blind. Work for Food is a 7-day-a-week community trash clean-up program designed to initiate the transition from life on the streets to involvement in the workforce by picking up trash in return for $10 in food gift cards from local fast food restaurants and grocery stores.|
|Sun. serving site:||1625 N. Schrader Avenue, Hollywood, California (parking lot)|
|When:||Every Sunday at 3:15 p.m., 52 weeks a year|
|Volunteers:||10-15 individuals distribute food and clothing at each serving|
With meals costing almost $5 each, plus $10 food gift cards for workers in our Work for Food program, our food expenses run approximately $2000 per week. We are funded primarily by individual contributions from volunteers and donors who want to make a difference in the lives of the homeless and poor, as well as by foundation & corporate grants and donations.
Nearly 100% of contributions go toward the purchase of food and food gift cards. Contributions are always welcome and greatly appreciated and can be made online (click here) or by check made payable to Food on Foot and mailed to 9663 Santa Monica Blvd., #743, Beverly Hills, California 90210.
