LOS ANGELES, CA – Share A Meal is more than just a food truck that delivers fresh, hot burritos to homeless people in Los Angeles — it’s a beacon of hope on wheels that aims to restore faith in people who have been neglected.

The Share A Meal program is run by volunteers who serve hot burritos from Monday to Friday in Hollywood, Venice Beach and Skid Row.

Each night, volunteers make around 200 burritos to give away. In addition to hot food, Share A Meal will occasionally give blankets, socks and toiletries. According to a report by the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority, there are over 46,000 homeless people in Los Angeles as of this year.

“When we go out and serve the community, the reception you get and how thankful and welcoming they are is so rewarding,” volunteer Alejandro Garcia said.
