Dear Food on Foot family,

I realize these are difficult and uncertain times. I sincerely hope that you and your family are coping with the very real threat of the Coronavirus and its unprecedented disruptions to your daily life.

The impact of this crisis is also being felt by our Work for Food (Jobs & Housing) program Gray Shirts and graduates, many of which have now lost their jobs.

These incredible men and women truly personify the goals and successes of Food on Foot. They frequently volunteer their time and mentor many homeless individuals to achieve that same success.

Please Help Our Gray Shirts and Grads Stay Housed and Safe

Losing a job is devastating and can lead someone back into homelessness:

  • Although there is an eviction freeze, missed rent still needs to be paid back eventually.
  • Unemployment checks are a fraction of what someone usually makes
  • A loss of income can lead to spiraling debt
  • Losing a job can dramatically lower self confidence

How Your Generous Gift Helps

Your gift during this crisis will help pay for:

  • Subsidized rent
  • Crisis management via phone
  • Counseling via phone
  • Food gift cards
  • Life-skills education
Your gift will also help us continue to distribute food on Sundays:

We will continue to distribute food with a modified serving, using best practices and only a handful of select help.

Food on Foot accepts no government funds whatsoever. We rely on the generosity of YOU to keep us going strong while helping keep our vulnerable neighbors safely housed.

Thank you again for your wonderful support. Together, we can prevail and continue to keep our participants off the streets.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact us at

Best wishes,

Jay Goldinger

Volunteer Spotlight

Jake Blumenfeld - $98 Club Member

"As a volunteer, I enjoyed listening to the people sharing their stories and kind deeds they did throughout the week.
I liked listening to the people that have graduated the program because it’s one less person who is not on the street or living in a shelter anymore."
