Feed the homeless


It started with one person, Echo Park resident Barry Walker, who cooked and delivered Turkey Day meals to the homeless in his neighborhood… and now a group of friends in Echo Park have shown up to help cook and deliver meals for the past 10 years – the first year, 28 homeless were fed! The next year more showed up and over fifty meals went out. The following year, we reached the 100 mark and last year we were able to feed over 1,500 homeless in our neighborhood and leave them with t-shirts, beanies, shoes, sweaters, and tooth brush kits. Gobble Gobble Give is a community event and has become an incredible example of what a community can do to make change.

Gobble Gobble Give is looking for volunteers on every level who can give food, money, or clothing and those who can donate their time this upcoming Thanksgiving day (Nov 26th) by cooking, warming, packaging and delivering food to the homeless in Echo Park and Downtown LA. Every little bit helps
those in need, so show some love and give a friend a reason to be thankful.

At 10:15 we begin a large “conveyor Belt” of food and with the help of everyone we put the meals together. We box them up together with care packages of tooth brushes, soap, clothes, etc..

At around 11: 00 a.m. the first vehicles begin to roll out. For those of you who have a car and want to drive you will be known as drivers. We will put a few people in your car with you and you will go out in two or three car teams. We hit the riverbeds, the alleys, the freeway overpasses. sometimes we discover small villages of people in dirt fields and empty lots. The vehicles return after delivering all the meals. We are always done by 1:00 p.m..

    I intended to create you a little bit of remark to be able to say thanks as before about the nice solutions you have contributed on this site. This has been quite shockingly open-handed of people like you to deliver unreservedly precisely what a few people would have advertised as an e-book in order to make some bucks for themselves, particularly since you could have tried it if you decided. Those creative ideas as well acted to become good way to fully grasp someone else have the identical keenness similar to my own to find out a great deal more around this condition. I think there are several more pleasurable moments up front for individuals that scan your blog post.

    Hola Chris. He leído tu artículo por tercera vez. Antes de esto estoy bastante seguro de que el RR es un robot. Razón: durante 30 días. Los primeros 2 días hacen clic. Luego hacen clic en ‘descanso/vacaciones’ durante 15 días. Luego hacen clic en 2 días y ‘descansan’ de nuevo. Es muy divertido. Me han prohibido porque abrí un ticket de soporte preguntando por el comportamiento del RR. Así que hoy me gustaría intentarlo de nuevo con Neobux, pero esta vez lo haré según tu sugerencia. Tengo 6 referidos. No creo que logre el punto de equilibrio con sus estadísticas. ¿Qué debo hacer ahora? Gracias.
