Donate today and make a DIRECT impact in the lives of the homeless
Food on Foot offers several donation opportunities in which YOU can make a direct impact in the fight against homelessness.
The quickest and easiest way to give is to donate online by filling out the form on this page. Nearly 85% of your donation is used to help our homeless clients with the resources they need to successfully interview for jobs and to keep those jobs.
You can also sign up to volunteer and help feed the homeless! Every Sunday, for the past 20 years, volunteers distribute food and clothing to the poor and homeless in our Hollywood serving area. Signing up to volunteer requires a $20 donation which is used to purchase the food and food gift cards we distribute during our serving.
Want to make the biggest impact? Join our $98 Club! Your monthly contribution will go towards funding the Work for Food program. Through Work for Food, homeless participants receive a life-skills education, job interview skills and most importantly, the confidence needed to graduate with a full-time job and housing they can afford.
