Food, a nonprofit organization that prepares and delivers
meals to people living with serious illnesses throughout Los
Angeles County, has launched a $6 million capital
campaign for the purchase and renovation of a new
facility located in Hollywood. The building will serve
as a permanent home and kitchen for the organization,
enabling the group to significantly expand its meal
services to the public.
Plans for the new
17,940-square-foot building include construction of a
large kitchen, which will allow the group to expand service
from 1,200 meals served daily to 2,500 meals. The
agency's current building is nearing capacity
and according to projected trends will soon not be
able to accommodate the growing demand for services, agency
the new kitchen and headquarters is scheduled to begin in
May with the goal of being fully operational by December
2006. The organization plans to continue uninterrupted
service to its current clients during the construction
of its new building.
Project Angel Food has provided more than 4 million meals to
more than 10,000 needy Los Angeles County residents,
including HIV-positive men, women, and children. From
2004 to 2005, Project Angel Food's client base
grew by 9%.
