logoFood on Foot is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization (Tax-ID#31-1581053) dedicated to providing the poor and homeless of Los Angeles with nutritious meals, clothing, and assistance in the transition to employment and life off the streets.

Food on Foot operates a weekly meal program every Sunday in Hollywood. Food on Foot began in March 1996 as one man's response to the hunger he witnessed among the poor and homeless of Hollywood. What initially began as the distribution of meals from the trunk of a car has grown through the dedication of its volunteers and now serves more than 200 meals each week to homeless, disabled, elderly and low-income adults and children. more about us >

Pierre Melki - $98 Club Member - 11/23/2014

I was looking for a charity to be involved in, and Foot on Foot was beyond my expectation. FOF does not only help by giving the homeless food, clothes, etc. Through it's program, FOF is helping them to get back their pride and dignity, and become real citizen again. Being homeless is not a dead end, and FOF is offering a sustainable solution to get off the streets. It's a true second chance through hard work and commitment. Giving food and clothes is great, but at the end of the day, it's temporary help. FOF's program is a true long term solution. Before knowing this organization, I only thought that the best way we could help was a hand out, without thinking of a hand up.

What I love about the Sunday's serving is to see the pride and joy, of the homeless after hard work they've completed. It's a positive atmosphere which push everyone into the right way.

-Pierre

Food on Foot Wins $10,000


Over a 3-week period, FOF competed against 9 other California nonprofits and received the most online votes, winning a $10,000 grant for our Work for Food program through the Clearinghouse CDFI Challenge. We're so grateful to everyone who voted daily and spread the word to friends, family, and colleagues. A special thanks goes out to our friend and long-time supporter - Neil Patrick Harris - who wrote "So glad you won. So glad I could help. So glad you continue to do what you do."

Work for Food


Each Sunday afternoon 40-50 homeless and poor individuals participate in our trash clean up program. This is the first step in their attempt to increase confidence and ultimately obtain a full time job and housing. We are proud that so many have graduated our program and are now completely self-supporting and off all government assistance.
