For over 35 years, Union Station Homeless Services has hosted annual Dinners-in-the-Park on Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day, providing warm holiday meals for people in the community. Over 7,500 meals were served last holiday season to people who are homeless, senior citizens, alone at the holidays, or unable to afford a holiday meal. Held every year in Pasadena’s Central Park, these events bring together volunteers to serve a healthy meal and holiday cheer to our less fortunate community members. Union Station is thankful for the in-kind donations of turkeys, hams, side dishes, desserts and new toys that make it all possible.

Volunteer Program: The Midnight Mission’s Volunteer program is a vital part of our service delivery system. Annually thousands of individuals, church groups, employee groups and others come down to the Mission or our Family Housing Program to serve our clients and guests. This life-changing experience is available 365 days a year. We are flexible and open to creative ways to serve those that rely upon our organization for their daily needs.

Food on Foot operates a weekly meal program every Sunday in Hollywood. Food on Foot began in March 1996 as one man’s response to the hunger he witnessed among the poor and homeless of Hollywood. What initially began as the distribution of meals from the trunk of a car has grown through the dedication of its volunteers and now serves more than 250 meals each week to homeless, disabled, elderly and low-income adults and children.
