For over two years, Lunch On Me (LOM) has been consistently distributing organic food throughout Skidrow, Los Angeles’ most vulnerable community. Supported with consistent volunteer involvement, LOM’s goal is to distribute 10,000 meals a month. As LOM has developed, our mission has grown from simply feeding those in need, to creating the Love Without Reason movement which is a bimonthly gathering meant to create a harmonic community filled with love and purpose.
To maximize weekly production, LaRayia Gaston, LOM’s founder and selfless activist, has begun running one of the programs from her home, in hopes of giving to more people. We are now positioned to switch gears and expand into our first brick-and-mortar location.
The funds raised in this challenge will go towards securing a permanent kitchen, yoga studio and coffee shop managed by LOM and staffed by members within homeless community.
