Homeless Meal Service





History Logs

Project Description

Country: USA

Location: Irvine

Total Budget: $3,500

Area of Focus: Community economic development

Activity Type: Community Development: General

Summary: Provide healthy meals to homeless

Orange County's Housing market creates a huge gap between rentals costs and median family income. Homelessness in OC due to job loss, divorce, abuse or medical crisis creates a large number of families with children that have to face this temporary crisis. Home Aid's Family Center provides temporary residential housing for such families some of them with infants.

Our project provides some meals to these families / individuals during their stay in this temporary housing facility. We will also supplement that with annual diaper drives and reading to the children when possible. The facility typically houses about 50-60 families and on a rotation basis up to 500-600 families a year.

Meal service will include food purchase / preparation, delivery and Rotarians serving the meals, if possible. We expect at least 10 Rotarians and other volunteers to participate in each meal service. Our project envisages a modest 5-6 meal services during the year.
