LaRayia Gaston


When LaRayia moved to Los Angeles from New York City, she was shocked by the extreme level of poverty she saw on the streets of DTLA, and immediately wanted to help. After spending some time with people in the skidrow community LaRayua felt a tug at her heart and knew this was her calling, so she founded Lunch On Me.

Lunch On Me is a nonprofit organization dedicated to ending starvation while providing opportunities to enrich the mind, body & spirit of LA’s homeless community. Lunch On Me feeds and serves over 10,000 plus homeless individuals and families on a monthly basis.
