Food insecurity is a problem at large across the United States. The US Department of Agriculture defines food insecurity as the lack of access, at times, to enough food for an active, healthy lifestyle. In Los Angeles alone, there are 1,079,900 individuals within the food insecurity population. The Chicago School of Professional Psychology (TCSPP) is providing students with the opportunity to do some creative work in the community through the Creative Students Fellowship. With the guidance of TCSPP, I, Maisie Paulson, am collaborating with Hollywood Food Coalition to raise funds to feed and serve those with immediate needs. Hollywood Food Coalition has the vision to
create a city where everyone has food, community, and support. With your help, I hope to support Hollywood Food Coalition by providing additional aid to address food insecurity in Los Angeles County.
ABOUT HOLLYWOOD FOOD COALITION
Hollywood Food Coalition's mission is to feed and serve the immediate needs of the hungry every day of the year so they can build better lives. Our vision is a city where everyone has food, community, and support.
HoFoCo has provided hunger relief to unhoused and food-insecure neighbors through hot, healthy meals served every single night of the year, without fail, since 1987.
In accordance with our values of Responsiveness, Consistency, Choice and Community, we have grown into a thriving meal service and food rescue operation providing meals and other basic necessities to food-insecure Angelenos.
We help more unhoused community members on a daily basis than any other social service agency in the neighborhood, with no barrier to access.
When we share food we not only help with basic needs, but we also remind our guests of their fundamental humanity. At the core, we actively seek to construct a more cohesive, just, and compassionate community.
At our core, we actively seek to construct a more cohesive, just, and compassionate community. We serve any hungry person who walks through our door, with no exclusionary intake or prohibitive requirements that would turn them away.
