Open Arms Food Pantry and Resource Center erected in 2018 when a group of likeminded Los Angeles based residents decided to form a charity that would engage in the most vulnerable and helpless residents that consist of homeless veterans, families with children and transitional age youth exiting foster care.
We support all of the groups mentioned above and more with essentials from our parnter Proctor and Gramble, United Way and other wonderful suppportive foundations that undertand our cause. Recently since COVID-19 we have initiated pop up events under our Meals 2 Go program and also diaper bank distributions with USC Civic Engagment Department.
Our agency also advocates and hosts two Art X Culture programming to benefit youth, impoverished communties and to celebrate the wonderful artistic expression within Los Angeles. Our annual event will be taking place on June 19th 2022 in culmination of Juneteenth Emancipation of Slaves US Holiday.
