Food on Foot is an amazing organization that Jay started out of the trunk of his car. Turning lives around, empowering people to become contributing members of the community is most important work. No one does it better!

Great organization and "work for food" program to help the homeless. Jay and his team have been doing such a great deed for the community for the past 869 weeks! Every person has a story and it's very heartwarming to see someone motivated to take control of their life and work hard not to become a tax burden to society. I commend the homeless people for working hard everyday towards getting back on their feet to become a taxpayer again. Without the support of Food on Foot, a self-sustaining nonprofit organization, these people would not have a second chance at integrating back into society. The program really works! If you haven't been to one of their Sunday events, you gotta go. Visit https://www.foodonfoot.org/ for more information.

Food on Foot is one of the three charities I participate with and it is by far the one I support most. It is an organization that successfully provides opportunities for those homeless that want to get off the streets of Hollywood.

From Our Editors

In 1996, Food on Foot set up on the steps of the Hollywood Post Office, delivering its first chicken dinner out of the trunk of a car to neighbors experiencing homelessness. The organization quickly expanded and began serving meals every Sunday to increase food security among underserved residents. Today, Food on Foot serves that same meal of chicken, rice, and tortillas every week, as well as a variety of healthy snacks including granola bars, baby carrots, fresh fruit, and bottled water. It also distributes gently used clothing, shoes, and sleeping bags and business clothes for clients who have secured job interviews.

In 1999, Food on Foot began its Work for Food program, wherein volunteers pick up trash in the Hollywood area. Each volunteer fills two garbage bags and receives a $10 grocery-store gift card, healthy snacks, and a chicken dinner in return. After participating in the program for two months, volunteers are placed on a daily route to pick up trash while the program staff works to help them acquire a full-time job. Once participants find a job, Food on Foot funds an apartment, utilities, and transportation for three months while they become established in their new position. During this time, workers continue their daily trash route and turn in their paychecks to Food on Foot. At the end of the three-month period, they receive the uncashed checks to open a savings account.
