Clients receive one to two Medically Tailored entrees for each day of the week, depending on their needs, fruit and, in most cases, breakfasts. Meals are delivered by Project Angel Food drivers or volunteers throughout all 4,700 square miles of Los Angeles County.
Under the care of Project Angel Food’s registered dieticians, and in consultation with each client’s primary healthcare case manager, clients receive one-on-one nutritional counseling and customized Medically Tailored Meals designed to meet the unique needs of their diagnosis and personal dietary restrictions and preferences.
Volunteers are the heart of Project Angel Food. Each year thousands of Angelenos as individuals or in corporate "give back" initiatives dedicate over 40,000 hours helping prep food in the kitchen, pack meals, deliver meals, or help with administration.
Founded in 1989 in the wake of the AIDS crisis, Project Angel Food has been a beacon of hope for the Los Angeles community. We have served over 26,000 men, women, and children over 15 million meals since our founding. Mayor Eric Garcetti named Project Angel Food an essential service in 2020 as a result of Project Angel Food's frontline response to COVID. Project Angel Food works with over 200 community partners so those living at the intersection of health, food and financial insecurity need not suffer because Project Angel Food is there.
