LOS ANGELES (May 29, 2024) — In a landmark event for Los Angeles, Congresswoman Sydney Kamlager-Dove (CA-37) and Project Angel Food joined CEO Richard Ayoub to celebrate a monumental achievement, delivering the 18 millionth meal to critically ill residents of Los Angeles County. The significant milestone event unfolded at Project Angel Food’s headquarters with staff and volunteers joining in the celebrations, reflecting the collective effort and dedication that fuels us.

Under the welcoming guidance of Ayoub, Rep. Kamlager-Dove was given a tour of the kitchen facilities. Here, she witnessed first-hand the meticulous care and compassion that goes into preparing each meal. The congresswoman actively participated in the day’s operations, labeling the final meals leading up to the 18 millionth and engaging with the dedicated team whose efforts make such profound impacts possible.

The celebration reached its peak with the “countdown” to 18 million where both Ayoub and Rep. Kamlager-Dove shared inspiring remarks. The congresswoman presented a certificate of recognition from the U.S. House of Representatives, lauding Project Angel Food for its unwavering service to the community.

“Project Angel Food truly embodies the spirit of angels, with each meal prepared and delivered, serving as a testament to the love and care bestowed upon our community members in need,” Rep. Kamlager-Dove said.

Echoing the significance of the occasion, Ayoub affirmed, “Project Angel Food is rising to the challenge with these 18 million meals, and will continue to do so, as there are more people sick, hungry, and alone who need a medically tailored meal not only to make them feel better, but to feel loved.”

The event also highlighted the personal impact of Project Angel Food’s work, with Rep. Kamlager-Dove delivering the milestone meal to a stroke survivor battling cardiovascular disease, emphasizing the organization’s role in addressing the health challenges faced by many in the region.

Project Angel Food continues to stand as a pillar of hope and vital support, especially within California's 37th Congressional District, which is home to 722 individuals each year. A significant portion of the clients are among the most vulnerable populations with severe diabetes being a prevalent challenge.
