Village for Vets has partnered with the Westside Food Bank to provide up to 20 bags of dinner and breakfast snacks on a daily basis to Homeless Veterans safely parking overnight at the VA’s Safe Parking, L.A. parking lot. The program is moving to a new location and expanding from 10 cars to 20 cars. Your help will allow us to continue to provide this service on a daily basis.

Our program is in need of financial donations and nonperishable sealed snacks, pop top canned protein – tuna, Vienna sausages, chicken, sardines, even Spam. Bottled water and water bottles are needed. Volunteers are needed to assemble the bags and to deliver these bags of food to the VA. The Veterans eagerly await these food bags – for some it is their only food each day.

With more funding we can buy instant hot meals for our recipients. We have one vegan! Four Veterans have been housed since the program began!!!

Our most immediate need is finanacial support and nonperishable pop top foods including canned protein, utensils and napkins, vegetable cups, fruit cups, bottled water and more*.

Contact us to volunteer and/or to provide donated goods at info@villageforvets.org.
