Getting Trader Joe’s Food Donation to the Greater West Hollywood Food Coalition in Hollywood – Uncle Paulie Has Been Delivering Truck Loads for 5 Years
For the last 5 years Gypsy Cool’s Uncle Paulie has been taking van loads of food to the Greater West Hollywood Food Coalition operating out of the Salvation Army Kitchen in Hollywood. They feed up to 200 people every night Monday through Friday. On weekends they are back at the corner of Romain and Sycamore in Hollywood around 5pm serving dinner.. Paulie makes the long trek from the West Valley at least once a week to deliver much-needed food to Hollywood’s Greater West Hollywood Food Coalition at the Salvation Army. “Being retired I love helping to feed people who are hungry and need food. We also distribute food directly almost every night of the week, and help many other groups grappling with the suffering of seniors, homeless folks, students, and other poor folks who need some extra help and love,” said Paulie. The volunteer delivery crew, including Uncle Paulie, Bob, Wendy, Chuck, Chris, Julie, Judith, John, Judy, Kathleen and others, are all from the charity Earth Harmony Foundation.
Volunteers sort through the donations from Trader Joe’s Market in Sherman Oaks. Chef Joe will use this food with other donations and some purchased food to make enough meals to feed 100 to 200 folks per night. A great crew of volunteers help to sort, prepare, cook, and serve the meals. Help is always needed, show up in the afternoon to the Salvation Army on Hollywood Blvd. (near Gower).
