The Taste of Home Festival
On Saturday, April 30th, 2022, PATH will host our very first food festival in the heart of Hollywood – the Taste of Home Festival.
The Taste of Home Festival is more than your typical food festival – there will be local food and beverage vendors, live entertainment, cooking activations, onsite volunteer and advocacy activities, and more!
All proceeds from the festival go towards supportive services for our neighbors experiencing homelessness in Los Angeles. In the last year, PATH Los Angeles has provided services for more than 18,000+ people and permanently housed more than 1,200 people. By attending the festival, supporters are increasing PATH's capacity to provide the supportive services that are critical to our mission – including housing navigation, homelessness prevention, employment services, substance abuse services, mental health services, street outreach, interim housing, and more.
30+ Local Food & Beverage Vendors
300+ Expected Attendees
3+ Entertainment Sets
Founded in 1984, PATH's mission is to end homelessness for individuals, families, and communities. PATH does this by providing supportive services and building affordable and supportive housing across the state.
With staff in 150 cities across California, PATH provides supportive services including case management, street outreach, interim housing, housing navigation, employment assistance, mental health care resources, Veteran services, and substance use treatment linkages to 22,000 individuals each year.
