Hello everyone and welcome to the 10th year of
FEED THE NEED 2017!!
What is Feed the Need?
For 9 years I have gathered a group of people to come together on Thanksgiving morning (November 23rd) to feed homeless families in Downtown Los Angeles around all Family Missions. Thousand of homeless families
that have no home or shelter gather around for this event. If you ever wanted to volunteer and make a child's day this event is perfect for you. We not only spread awareness to help our community but we give hope to families who need really our help.
Why we stand out
This is a very hands on event, you will personally get to hand bags of food water and warm clothes to so many families including children who are in need. Every year we not only pass out thousands of bags of food but we really get to connect with a child, and make a family laugh and spread so much love to these families in need. It's something that words cant describe. And a feeling that will last forever.
If your interested in participating and or know anyone that would like to help please do not hesitate. There is no waiting list ALL IS WELCOME!
Every year this event gets stronger lets help make it one to remember and put the true meaning to ThanksGIVING.

What happens the day of
1. Our group will first meet at Penn Park where will pack bags of food/clothes for our families in need.
2. From there we will all head to The Union Family Mission in Downtown Los Angeles as a group to pass out our bags of food to families and children
3. After bags are given out many of us stay to talk, play and connect with our families in need (this is what separates us from any other group. If you have gone or this is your first time you will love this part. A smile, hug and a happy thanksgiving can go such a long way to a child in need.

WHAT TO BRING
I always recommend "ON THE GO" snack like items. The 99 cent store, Cosco or Smart & Final our the best places to purchase snacks in bulk. For example You can get lunch size chips. Oatmeal packs Cookies. Granola bars fruit snacks, water, juices, hygiene products. Basically pick something that can be used on the go and easy to transport place to place.
