Food + Healing Lunch On Me isn’t just about food. We are a Los Angeles based non-profit dedicated to ending hunger while providing opportunities to enrich the mind, body and spirit of L.A’s homeless community. For over two years, Lunch On Me (LOM) has been consistently distributing organic food throughout Skidrow, Los Angeles’ most vulnerable community. Supported with consistent volunteer involvement, LOM distributes 10,000 meals a month. As LOM has developed, our mission has grown from simply feeding those in need, to creating the Love Without Reason movement which is a bimonthly gathering meant to create a harmonic community filled with love and purpose
To maximize weekly production, LaRayia Gaston, LOM’s founder and selfless activist, has begun running one of the programs from her home, in hopes of giving to more people. We are now positioned to switch gears and expand into our first brick-and-mortar location.
To start this new operation we will need $50,000 to secure our space. So far we’ve raised $10,000 through crowd funding within 10 days. Our goal is to secure our start up goal of $50,00 by the end of December, within January we plan to secure another $50,000 to begin our weekly healing programs and job training.
