The LACW soup kitchen is again serving TO-GO Meals. Due to concerns of COVID-like symptoms, our kitchen was closed for the past week as our workers and volunteers were tested multiple times. We have no positive cases and are back on 6th Street and Gladys Ave. serving TO-GO Meals, passing out mail, and providing hygiene items on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.
Volunteers are encouraged to join us in meal prep, we only ask that you are not coming into contact with many others, have not been in a high-risk area in over two weeks (traveled, protests or gatherings of large groups, etc), and can be tested on a weekly basis. Please call 323.267.8789 for more info. Thank you.
Due to concerns over COVID-19, the LACW soup kitchen will be temporarily closed until September 8. If you plan to eat or volunteer with us, please check this website for further updates.
We will continue to do mail serviceONLY, but will not be providing food or toiletries at this time.
We are not the only food providers for our friends in the Skid Row community, but know that every time we close, it is an inconvenience to many people. Please keep the Skid Row community in your prayers!

The LACW soup kitchen is again serving TO-GO Meals! Due to concerns of exposure to COVID-19, our kitchen was closed for the past two weeks as our workers and volunteers were quarantined. Everyone is healthy, and we are back on 6th Street and Gladys Ave. serving TO-GO Meals and passing out hygiene items.
Volunteers are encouraged to join us in meal prep, we only ask that you are not coming into contact with many others, have not been in a high-risk area in over two weeks (traveled, protests or gatherings of large groups, etc), and can be tested on a weekly basis. Thank you.
Roman Catholic Womanpriest, Rev. Kathleen Bellefeuille-Rice, will be leading us in an online liturgy via Zoom. We are very fortunate to have this opportunity to come together in prayer as the LACW is quarantining from one another, all of our volunteers, friends, and greater community.
Because gatherings have been discouraged to prevent the spread of COVID-19, this year our annual Stations of the Cross was led by one person through downtown Los Angeles and streamed on the Los Angeles Catholic Worker Facebook page. Matt Harper created and led a Stations of the Cross centered on the imprisonment of thousands in Los Angeles County.
For anyone who has previously volunteered with us, and is familiar with our kitchen, please do consider volunteering – IF you have been healthy for the past two weeks and IF you have not traveled in the past two weeks.
As all of Los Angeles is being called to wear masks while out in public, the L.A. Times reported on the lack of access that most unhoused people have to the protective gear required in this unusual time. Fortunately, the LACW was able to source a couple thousand masks (and more have been donated to us) so we are able to provide the folks that come to eat at the Hippie Kitchen with a simple protective barrier at a time when they have little means to remove themselves from the public.
Good Friday is the day Jesus was arrested, tried, tortured and executed by the State. Join the L.A. Catholic Worker this Good Friday (April 10th) in calling on all Christians to demand our county take immediate action to save the lives of our incarcerated brothers and sisters before their prison cages become death cells.
