I can't really celebrate on September 11th and dining out for no particular reason just doesn't seem to be appropriate. So what can I do on Sept. 11th? I'd like to help some others that are less fortunate than me. The Monday Night Mission looks like a great idea and cause. So, if you have some time, would like to help others...

I'd like to check out this cause with just a small group of our Foodies to see if they can use our support and find out the best ways we can help this "under the radar" community group. This evening there will be a large group from USC is another reason I want to keep this initial meeting small.

About the Monday Night Mission: We meet every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday night to feed our Homeless Brothers and Sisters on Skid-row.

The sole aim of Monday Night Mission is to feed the less fortunate of Skid-Row who are turned away from Skid-Row shelters.

Monday Night Mission Overview We feed our Homeless Brothers and Sisters on Skid-row every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday night. 
We meet at the Burger King at 7.30pm at 700 West Cesar e Chavez ave, Los Angeles CA 90012.
We will then prepare food, organize car pools, and aim head to Skid Row. Anyone and everyone is welcome! Don’t worry about what you can or cannot bring! Bring yourself! 

Please wear close-toed footwear and be prepared for cold or rainy weather. If you would like to bring food, below is a list of food items that can always be used, however, anything you can contribute is appreciated and will make a difference! We aim to feed anywhere from 150 to 350 people every night, but the numbers will vary.

Also, please feel free to bring any clothing items, blankets, toiletries, etc. you would like to donate.

    Can someone take my spot? I wn't be able to make the initial meeting as I was out running errands all day and am tapped. There's still time if anyone wants to squeeze in for me! For sure i'll be at the next one. Poor planning on my part. :(

    agh! I'm still working. I might make it but I might not so I'll let someone else have my spot. I might show up anyway though if I do make it. One more person wouldn't hurt ;)

    June, They serve food every night Monday-Friday. I cannot host this on Mondays as I have a standing commitment on Mondays. If you or anyone would like to be the EO for a Monday night, that is no problem. Yes, they would appreciate donations of food and or clothing on any day of the week.

    This is just a scouting event to check out the volunteer group. I'm planning to do an event the last Tuesday of each month. If anyone would like to host the event on another day, that's cool. There's little management as the organizers of the charity run the show, so we will all be just mindless worker bees, enjoying helping the needy. Fall weather and wet weather will be coming up soon, so the homeless will appreciate blankets, warm clothing, rain gear as well...

    Also, I'd do it if it were a Thursday or Friday too. I bet this would be a great thing to do if we brought some nice food. And are there late night dining options downtown? Metro runs til 2 am Fridays now, why not put that to good use? (At least I'd be up for walking to and from Metro-- if other females wanted to do it--safety in numbers; this is after all Skid Row.)

    I'd like to do this next time too, perhaps on another night (Mondays as advertised)?

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
