FOOD ON FOOT TO PROVIDE WARM SLEEPING BAGS, BUS TOKENS, AND A HEALTHY MEAL WITH SNACKS ON THANKSGIVING DAY TO THE HOMELESS AND POOR!


Hollywood, Calif. November 27, 2014 On Thursday, November 27, 2014 at 3:00pm, Food on Foot will provide the homeless and poor with warm sleeping bags, bus tokens and a healthy meal with snacks on Thanksgiving Day in Hollywood in the parking lot of the Gay and Lesbian Center - 1625 North Schrader Avenue, 90028.

With over 100 volunteers scheduled, along with Food on Foot’s founder, Jay Goldinger, over 500 needy individuals will be very grateful this Thanksgiving season. In Food on Foot’s 19th year providing food to the homeless and poor, Jay says, “It’s so humbling when you are able to provide for hundreds of individuals that are unable to provide for themselves during the holidays.

Food on Foot introduced a program in 1999 called Work for Food and is still going strong today. Work for Food is a 7-day-a-week trash clean-up program, providing assistance in the transition of full-time employment and life off the streets.
