Project Angel Food
- Field of Interest:
- Vulnerable Populations
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.
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.
