Project Angel Food

Company Bio

Project Angel Food provides home-delivered medically tailored meals and nutritional counseling for chronically and/or terminally ill residents throughout Los Angeles County. The people we serve have various life-threatening diagnoses and come from all backgrounds. They are living with HIV/AIDS, cancer, kidney failure, congestive heart failure, diabetes, stroke, Alzheimer’s disease, and other serious illnesses; they represent the growing aging population as well as the food insecure population; and they span six generations, from Post-Millennials to The Greatest Generation. Through the help of volunteers, all meals are cooked, prepared, and packaged in our 8,000-sq.-ft. kitchen and made with love. Our drivers deliver these meals directly to our clients, providing them with comfort and hope in a time of great need.

More Info

For 29 years, Project Angel Food has prepared and delivered 11.5 million free medically tailored meals to more than 20,000 Los Angeles County residents living with life-threatening illness. We are the only nonprofit in Southern California providing free food and nutrition services to low-income individuals of all backgrounds and with various diagnoses throughout the entire 4,000+ square-mile LA County region – from South and East Los Angeles to Long Beach and the San Gabriel and San Fernando Valleys to the remote areas of Antelope Valley. All meals are prepared at our kitchen facility located at 922 Vine Street, centrally located in the county.

While Project Angel Food began as a program serving people with HIV/AIDS in the 1980s, our program was expanded in 2004 to include any person living with a life-threatening illness. Each week, we cook, prepare, and deliver 12,000 medically tailored meals to 1,400 clients living with HIV/AIDS, cancer, kidney failure, congestive heart failure, diabetes, stroke, Alzheimer’s and other serious illnesses. Annually, we serve over 600,000 meals to more than 2,100 clients, including breakfast meals to the children and youth of our food insecure clients. As more than half of our clients live alone, our drivers provide social connectedness to those who are socially isolated.
