The Mission helps low-income, food-insecure individuals and families gain access to nutritious food through a weekly Food Basket Program. Food baskets contain various perishable items as well as toiletries with a minimum value of $100.00 per basket.
On average, 50 baskets are distributed every Wednesday to low-income families who are living in SRO’s and hotels in the Greater Los Angeles area. Each basket feeds an entire family and provides eight meals to provide low-income households the food they need to maintain adequate nutritional levels. Baskets for large size families of more than four individuals are also accommodated.
Last year, 2,600 baskets were distributed to families in need and the number continues to grow every year. Food baskets are sometimes the only source of food for the families we serve. The goal is to help low-income people put healthy food on their tables each week and ensure that low-income children continue to receive nutritious meals when school is not in session.
