History

When the recession and housing crash began to become a tangible reality in 2010, four friends were looking for solutions for the scary new world the American middle class faced all of a sudden.  Out of work and with real estate prices crashing, many middle class families found themselves in unexpected trouble and even running out of means to provide much needed food.  It became apparent that help was needed. The idea of a food distribution program was born.

We approached the President of the Los Angeles Turners, Carole Kulzer-Brennan. The Los Angeles Turners have been around for 140 years, founded in 1871, and have always had a strong social engagement.  Carole Kulzer-Brennan was very supportive of the idea, and together with the Christian donation Center in Los Angeles and the Second Harvest Food bank in Orange County, who offered their generous support as well, and with the help of many other friends we began distributing food.  The program grew naturally during these most difficult economic times, almost doubling the food distribution in one short year. Currently the Los Angeles Turners still have a special fund for donations to their “Feed the Needy” program.

When we were a year into the operation it became apparent that we had to start our own charity. This was the birth of the California Outreach Organization, Inc.  The Secretary of state incorporated the nonprofit public benefit corporation in July 2011. It is not organized for the private gain of any person. The specific purpose is to support and feed people in need, especially the elderly and families with children.
