What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Update January 2020: Wages in Los Angeles do not keep up rental costs which increases the homeless population. We are working specifically to assist high functioning homeless individuals with job training leading to wages in line with the cost of living in Los Angeles. As a result, these individuals will become self-sufficient sooner and have the skills to advance in their careers.

Jobs & Housing

Food on Foot's Jobs & Housing program helps individuals experiencing homelessness in Los Angeles who are physically and mentally able to return to the workforce and find and maintain permanent housing. Program participants work with licensed clinicians and other trained and experienced program professionals with employment training opportunities, the receipt of food gift cards, and access to counseling. Once gainfully employed, Food on Foot enables participants to move into their own apartment and subsidizes their rent and all basic expenses while allowing participants to save their own funds. Program participants not only successfully shift their own personal and professional trajectories, but also serve as mentors to other program participants that are just beginning to embark on their own journey off the streets.

Population(s) Served

Every week, and without pause during the COVID-19 pandemic, Food on Foot has hosted Sunday meal service for unhoused and low-income individuals in Los Angeles. Prior to the pandemic, approximately 150 individuals received a hot meal and a bag of food items and hygiene supplies to help them in the upcoming week. During 2020, the average number of attendees at the weekly servings grew to 275+ individuals at each event. Food on Foot’s programs are held in the back parking lot of the Los Angeles LGBT Center in Hollywood, and during the pandemic, Food on Foot used the long-standing weekly food distribution events to ensure those in need also received PPE supplies, hand sanitizer, and many other essentials like backpacks, clothing, sleeping bags, shoes, and socks. Despite operating under COVID restrictions, Food on Foot served over 11,500 meals in 2020, and over 85,000 personal items, such as clothing, shoes, socks, sleeping backs, backpacks, and toiletries.
