Frequently Asked Questions

Hollywood Food Coalition

Can I edit or cancel my sign-up?

Yes. You can edit the details of your sign-up or cancel by logging back into Sign-Up Genius with the original E-Mail and password you used for your sign-up. Once you have logged in, navigate to Sign-Ups, then the “Invited To” section where you should see any shifts you are currently signed up for. You can edit the details of your sign-up (number of attendees, comments, etc.) by clicking the pencil icon to the right, or cancel your sign up by clicking on the X icon.

I’ve signed up, what should I bring and/or wear to my shift? Are there any other details I should be aware of?

Wear comfortable shoes and clothes that you don’t mind getting a little food or dishwater on, and bring a water bottle as we don’t have single-use plastic water bottles. Otherwise, we have everything you need for your shift at the kitchen or the street.

Where can I park for my shift?

Street parking is readily available on Hollywood Blvd, Carlos Ave or on Gower St. or Bronson Avenue to the East of the campus.

Can I donate clothing, shoes or other non-food items?

Yes you can donate them in person anytime from 3pm till 8pm or you can contact us to arrange pickup if a large enough donation.

What if I’m running late or need to cancel last minute?

If you have the contact information for any of your shift leads, please do text or call them in advance and let them know you are running late or are unable to make it. If not, you can try our kitchen line at 323-462-2032 and whoever answers can pass on the information. As a last resort, you can always E-Mail us at

Where should I show up for my shift and at what time?

The Meal Prep shift begins at 1:30pm, 7-days a week at our kitchen at The Way In on the Salvation Army campus at 5939 Hollywood Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90028. The building is located on the East side of the main drive. You can enter through the blue framed glass door closest to Hollywood Blvd, sign into the visitor log and the front desk staff will buzz you back to the kitchen where you can meet the lead cook.
The Meal Service shift begins at 5:45pm at the same location (5939 Hollywood Blvd) Monday - Friday. On Saturdays & Sundays we serve our meal on the street on N Sycamore Avenue (between Romaine St & Willoughby Ave).. Our driver arrives at the location around 6:15pm where we set-up, serve, then break down and return back to the kitchen to clean serving dishes, utensils, etc. (We do need volunteers to return back to the kitchen to help clean.)
