Volunteer Spotlight

12/28/2020 - Skirball Cultural Center

In the spirit of our mission to help build a better world, Skirball employees and docents assembled and contributed care packages for individuals and families across Greater Los Angeles in response to Food on Foot’s Holiday Care Package Drive. With warmth and enthusiasm, we supplied hygiene products such as shampoo, toothbrushes, and other essential items such as socks and gloves.

Tzedakah is the Hebrew word for “justice,” often interpreted as “good deeds.” In keeping with our dedication to Jewish values, we at the Skirball thank Food on Foot for serving the Greater Los Angeles community year-round and providing an opportunity for us to practice tzedakah this winter season.

12/22/2020 - Hollywood High School Army JROTC

Food on Foot was the first place our Cadets turned to when we wanted to help those in need in our own neighborhood. The Hollywood High School Army JROTC Cadets are students earning elective credit as they “become better citizens” thru organizing and completing Service Learning Projects – like our Blanket and Warm Clothing Drive where we gathered over 200+ items for Food on Foot to distribute to their clients.

We’d heard about the amazing work of Food on Foot helping folks get back on their feet and we knew we wanted to be part of that effort. Our Cadets were moved learning how impactful their simple efforts were in aiding those who need and deserve so much help.

Food on Foot means to give to the less fortunate, and gives people a second chance at succeeding in life.

What I like most about Food on Foot is that it helps people who are in need of a job and a place to live. And Food on Foot makes that dream possible for them. I like that Food on Foot also helps people get back up on their feet.

When I first arrived at Food on Foot I was a little nervous at first. Then I started to get to know the people that were helping out and started to feel happy because I was giving back to the community. 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.
