On May 18, 2020, The Hollywood Food Coalition successfully opened The COMMUNITY EXCHANGE at the Hollywood United Methodist Church on the NW corner of Highland and Franklin.
In the first 4 months we took in more than 267,000 pounds of food. Half of that food was used to make our nightly Community Dinner. The remaining 60 tons of food, THE COMMUNITY EXCHANGE carefully & mindfully distributed to over 40 organizations that feed people in need.
We are building a concierge service that takes the time and the respect needed to match the right food and items to each specific organization.
