Food on Foot’s Mission
Food on Foot is a nonprofit dedicated to assisting our unhoused and low-income neighbors in Los Angeles with nutritious meals, clothing, and a fresh start through life-skills training, full-time employment, and permanent housing.
28 out of 32 formerly unhoused individuals participating in the housing phase of our Jobs & Housing program in 2021 – saving money and becoming self sufficient – are still housed in 2022.

How YOUR SUPPORT
Makes A Difference In The Lives
Of Our Unhoused Neighbors:
Jobs & Housing
Our Jobs & Housing program helps high-functioning people experiencing homelessness earn their way off the streets with a full-time job, a fully furnished apartment, and life-skills training.
“Joining Food on Foot was the best decision I have ever made. This is more than just a program. It has completely changed my life.”
Devin P. – Jobs & Housing Graduate

“Food on Foot means a way to not only give monetarily, but it also provides a personal experience as well. My wife Cheryl and I try to provide a ‘hands on’ component to our community service that will impact our daughters that simply signing a check can’t provide. Interacting with the unhoused right in our own community and making a difference is essential for them to forge a memory and a lesson that helps them grow into caring and active adults in the future.”
