Resources for the under privileged community tend to only exist during the day and only in specific parts of town so there is little to no support available at night, which is when they might need it the most.
The MISSION for Karma will be to deliver food on the streets at night when all the LA City & LA County food banks & shelters are closed and, in pockets of areas without enough resources.
ABOUT US - THE GOOD KARMA ORG
Growing up, my dad would always ask me if I had done my good karma for the day (one good deed) and once I grew up, I found myself asking the same question – “Have I done my good karma today?” So, one day in 2020, I decided to just buy an old milk delivery truck, transform it into a food truck and start serving food to my neighborhood unhoused communities in LA. Months of hard work later and through support from the community, we had built out a brand-new engine for the truck, new tires, and a freshly painted food truck.
Meet Karma, our Food delivery truck.
What started out as a personal project has now turned into a non-profit organization that delivers food to several communities and community organizations in and around LA. Every Sunday, come rain or shine, you’ll find a group of volunteers in blue serving hot meals, snacks and water to those in need in Skid Row.
Over the past two years, with support from our amazing volunteers and donors, we’ve been able to serve 40k meals, 80k water bottles and many other resources such as snacks, socks, blankets etc.
We are a 100% non-profit dedicated to serving our community. In complete transparency, your donations will help us pay for the below costs –
Plumbing - $3,800
