Heroes Among Us: Echo Park's Dream Center ramps up food distribution services

An Echo Park organization with a mission to help people experiencing issues such as homelessness, addiction, and abuse is now also ramping up its efforts to feed those in need on a daily basis. 

The Dream Center started increasing its food distribution service when the COVID-19 pandemic struck.

It normally serves 1,500 hot meals a day for people in its recovery program. Now, The Dream Center is handing out up to 14,000 meals each day. 

The grab and go site is open seven days a week between 7:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. 

Not only are they handing out free food, but they are also handing out masks and diapers for families.

In addition, they don’t turn anyone away.
