Food on FootFood on Foot is a non-profit who feed and clothes the poor and homeless and operate a very well thought out effective program, Food for Work Program that help get homeless into jobs.  In 1996, Food on Foot's founder, Jay Goldinger, began helping our homeless neighbors by serving chicken dinners out of the trunk of his car right outside the Hollywood Post Office. He soon realized that food wasn't the solution to homelessness. The underlying factors causing the homeless epidemic area lack of confidence, resources, and community. In 1999, Jay tackled this issue head-on by creating the Work for Food program, designed to help homeless individuals regain their footing back into society through full-time jobs, housing, life-skills and confidence building. Since then, Food on Foot's weekly Sunday Meal program and Work for Food program have taken place every single Sunday in the back parking lot of the LGBTCenter in Hollywood, rain or shine.
April 11, 2019 - Mark Anderson
Farmer Mark"Farmer Mark" Anderson is the person who sets up and makes sure Farmers' Markets in our surrounding areas including Westwood Village run smoothly by getting the right location and mix of vendors and products for the public.  After a masters degree in finance and a career in investment banking, Farmer Mark stumbled upon a career in agriculture when his dot.com aspirations burst with the bubble in 2001.  Instead, Mark found himself in the business of tomatoes. He spent the next six years running a small tomato farm in Ventura County using organic, hydroponic and conventional growing methods.  An abundance of crops lead to selling in the local farmers' markets. Seeing a glaring need for a better run market, Mark decided to create his own. He now runs six certified farmers' markets in southern California.
