ORGANIZATION DESCRIPTION

Founded in 1989, Project Angel Food cooks and delivers over 600,000 nutritious meals each year, free of charge, to the homes of men, women, and children affected by lifethreatening illnesses. Its medically tailored meals and nutritional counseling services help chronically and terminally ill people throughout Los Angeles County who are too sick to shop or cook for themselves.

GRANT PURPOSE

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Project Angel Food’s team is continuing to feed its ongoing clientele of over 1,400 people, while also managing an increased demand of an additional 600 people per day. Its team of nutritionists developed emergency food kits to meet each client’s complex medical conditions, ensuring food is nutritious even with COVID19 supply chain disruptions. Contributions towards its COVID-19 response will support emergency meals, health and safety provisions and measures, additional personnel capacity, and its home delivery meal operation.

Project Angel Food has increased the number of people we serve by 30 percent in response to COVID-19 and we had to cancel all of our in-person fundraisers. When the Jewish Community Foundation of Los Angeles found out, that stepped up in a big way.
