About

Our all-volunteer "Under The Bridges and On The Streets" program prepares and distributes food, clothing and personal care items directly to the streets, feeding the homeless population of Los Angeles. We prepare nutritious bagged meals and deliver them along with personal care products, new clothing and blankets.

We serve the homeless on the streets, where they live, which includes the elderly, men, women and children.

Besides assisting the homeless, we also provide the experience of hands-on direct service for volunteers.

A special aspect of our program is that we physically take food to the homeless, where they live, Under the Bridges and On the Streets. This often takes us into alleys, empty lots and other places where the homeless congregate. We personalize our service whenever possible, whether providing meatless sandwiches for vegetarians, turkey sandwiches for homeless Muslims, or sugar free treats for diabetics.
