Brilliant Corners: Partnership with Housing Services

Community & Partnerships


Brilliant Corners, a housing and services nonprofit, specializes in building new, scalable supportive housing platforms to rapidly house homeless people and those at risk of homelessness. With funding from the CARES Act, Brilliant Corners partnered with Revolution Foods to provide meals to homeless and underserved individuals during the pandemic.

The Challenge

Many Los Angeles County residents lost their jobs and homes and were unable to put food on their tables due to high unemployment and COVID positivity rates.

Brilliant Corners received temporary funding support from World Central Kitchen and Los Angeles Homeless Service Authority but was in need of a more sustainable feeding solution for its meal pickup sites across the County.

 

What We Did 

Leveraging funding from the CARES Act, Revolution Foods and Brilliant Corners partnered to take over temporary World Central Kitchen meal pickup sites.

We designed and produced freshly prepared grab-and-go lunches, suppers, and shelf-stable weekend meals to satisfy the unique operational requirements of pickup sites and taste preferences of meal recipients.

Meals included hearty, culturally relevant and dignified offerings such as chicken and waffles, pesto penne pasta with chicken breast, and holiday-themed meals.

The Results 

Since summer '20, Revolution Foods delivered over 1.1 million meals and snacks to homeless and underserved individuals across the County. Our partnership with Brilliant Corners has provided sustained nutrition support to those in need despite shifting funding sources.
