Feeding the Poor
ABOUT THIS CAUSE
On any given night, there are about 34,189 people experiencing homelessness in Greater Los Angeles. All-year-round, an estimated 42,828 people, which includes 5,000 children, live unsheltered in vehicles, tents, or encampments.
Those numbers are daunting, but the city has passed several measures to tackle the crisis.
On our part, we have developed several campaigns to provide support to shelters and other NGO’s.
ONGOING PROJECTS & CAMPAIGNS
The Burrito Project
The Burrito Project, is a group of friends who meet monthly to commune with one another and share quality food with the disenfranchised people of downtown Los Angeles, Pasadena & surrounding areas. Purchasing, production, and distribution of all food are a group effort.
You can provide meals and hope – every month – to hungry, homeless and hurting people who come to Los Angeles & Orange county shelters.
Ascencia’s mission is to lift people out of homelessness, one person, one family at a time. We envision a community where people in need can find services, resources, and safe, affordable housing.
Community Food Lifeline (Pandemic Response)
As a response to the massive unemployment as a result of the pandemic lockdown in Los Angeles County since March 2020, we took the initiative to distribute bread, cakes, pies, cookies and produce.
