Over the past 13 years, one group of friends has been finding a way to help others on Thanksgiving. The Gobble Gobble Give neighborhood movement started with one man cooking a simple meal for the homeless in his neighborhood. Gobble Gobble Give has since expanded to a group of friends each contributing a dish, plating meals, and finding the homeless and hungry in their local areas to hand out meals to. The Gobble Gobble Give event is different, as volunteers go out of their way to feed the hungry living under deserted freeway underpasses, in railroad yards, riverbeds, and empty lots.
Once just a small group of friends in Echo Park, the Gobble Gobble Give event grew to feed over 5,000 homeless in Los Angeles, Harlem, Brooklyn and Las Vegas during the past Thanksgiving. Volunteers each contribute a dish, put together meals, and find those who are in need in their local neighborhoods. Gobble Gobble Give has also begun to collect warm clothing, shoes, blankets, and toiletries for the homeless.
To get involved with Gobble Gobble Give, you can choose to donate money to allow for the purchase of food and supplies, or your time packaging and delivering food. Gobble Gobble Give is also collecting gently worn clothing and shoes as well as blankets and toiletries.
