Feeding our neighbors (PATH)

PATH Meals is IKAR’s longtime project to bring dinner and conversation to veterans who are overcoming homelessness at PATH’s West LA transitional home. We cook and serve dinner on the 3rd Thursday and 4th Monday of every month to about 30 residents. Those who serve the meal stay to talk and share companionship with the residents while they eat.

How can I participate?

You can participate in two ways: by dropping off your selected contributions or by bringing your dish and serving dinner to the community from 5:30-7pm

Who can participate?

Volunteers must be at least 16 years of age to serve meals at PATH, but we encourage you to make a dish at home with younger children and drop it off if they are too young to serve.

How much food should I prepare/purchase?

We expect to serve 25-30 PATH clients during each event. Please bring enough food to serve 20 guests as it will be served potluck style.

Does food need to be home cooked?

No, participants can feel free to prepare meals at home or bring store bought items to serve.

Should participants expect to cook items onsite?

No, please bring pre-cooked dishes. There will be an oven to warm up items, if needed.
