Meals to Angelenos with Disabilities

Partnership launched to provide meals to Angelenos with disabilities

As of Monday, May 18, 2020

L.A. County is home to more than a million individuals with disabilities –– 26 percent of whom live in poverty, and more than 40 percent of whom live in households that are food insecure.

Mayor Garcetti announced a new partnership with FOX Corporation to provide free meals to individuals with disabilities across Los Angeles.

2,000 meals will be prepared by the FOX Corporation food service team on the FOX lot in Cheviot Hills, and delivered to a hub at one of our public library branches, where drivers from Access Paratransit will pick them up and bring them directly to the Angelenos who need them. This program will conclude on May 29th.

To ensure we continue to provide meals, beginning Monday, May 18th the Department on Disability has partnered with Khalsa Care Foundation (KCF), on behalf of the Sikh Community in Los Angeles, to begin delivering an additional 1,000 vegetarian meals a day and will continue to be delivered by Access Paratransit.

The Angelenos with Disabilities Meal Program was created as a temporary lunch delivery service to bridge the hunger gap that exists for people with disabilities during the COVID-19 pandemic in the City of Los Angeles. Our program was supported in part by generous donations and volunteer time. While we attempted to keep the program afloat as long as we could by adding two additional date extensions, unfortunately, we are unable extend ita third time. Our last delivery will be on Friday, July 17th, 2020.
