    Is anyone else bringing food except the chicken Angie is bringing and our giant pot pasta? I am still sick after 2weeks and still wiped out from my 12hour flight from Detroit to LAX on Friday. If there are other people bringing food I'm gonna bow out. Otherwise I'm not going to leave you hanging! We couldn't get ahold of our family in LA to spend the night so have a 2hr drive down there. If we are late, where do we go to find you?

    oh! and how do we know people arent bringing too much of the same thing? Im sure a hot meal is a hot meal, but if there are choices, Im sure these people would love to eat more than just spagehtti lol. Is anyone else bringing pasta? We were thinking a vegetable pasta... and a good idea I had for fruits and veggies is Im going to the SB farmers market on Saturday and asking for donations of the stuff that is unsaleable at the next market on tuesday.

    I know youve been doing this a LONG TIME lol. so, please! give me and the other newbies a heads up!

      I'll let everyone know how things go with getting leftover donations from the SB farmers market tomorrow, Saturday. I'd love to make this a weekly gathering of food that would otherwise go to waste.

    Kara, I wont have a phone to call you until Friday late morning, and I fly to Cali Friday afternoon. Can you tell me, and the group, what size/age children's clothing we can bring? My ex-roommate moved out over 2 months ago and never came back for her stuff. I will be giving it all to charity, and I'd like to stuff an extra suitcase with clothing that would help out :-) I will also attempt to bring some heavy coats for adults, seeing a 60* there equates to our -10* we had today here in Michigan lol.

    Anyway, I have anything from size 3mo to size 18mo in little girl's clothing. Im sure since you mentioned possibly people bringing clothing that it would be good to tell the group what to bring if they have it.

    THANKS!

    I love this idea! can someone tell me (and the group) or post link to an article about this particular homeless group? This is so huge sounding and since we are instructed to bring children's clothing I assume there are entire families there. I would like to know more about the story of the MacArthur park homeless community. THANK YOU!

    Hi,

    Would you like a free MediCal enrollment table at your event? The homeless can apply for free MediCal at the event if they would like. The new law makes health insurance free for impoverished people. I am a Certified Enrollment Counselor and would love to help the homeless find doctors in the area who will see them for free with MediCal.
