Coup Street Feeds Skid Row at L.A. Mission

Coup Street L.A. Mission Adopt A Meal

Last night, Coup Street and some volunteers fed the homeless during our Adopt-A-Meal donation with the money raised at For L.A. by L.A. First and foremost I’d like to thank everyone that volunteered and helped make it a special night. It was my first time doing something like that, and it definitely wont be the last.

Coup Street L.A. Mission Adopt A MealWe made it an extra special night, by teaming up with our boy Josue Zeta Rojas aka Zeta Photography and displayed photographs from his project, “Skid Row Quotes: Portraits of Hope.” The project is a series of black and white portraits of residents of the Skid Row community.  This was the first time anyone had really seen them, and who better to see them, than the community he took them of? A lot of the faces were recognized by some of the people that ate with us last night.

Tommy and his daughter Mia showed up, along with Billie, Jillian, and David. We started prepping in the kitchen and later on we served Sloppy Joes and potato wedges.

We got a chance to talk with a few of the people that work there, hear their stories, and desires to change their lives around. One of the people I was intrigued by was a man named Ivery. He was very down to earth, and had a good understanding of where he’d been, and the path he’s on now. He said he used to be a tap dancer, and that every now and then, they have a talent show at the mission that he participates in. I’d really like to check it out.
