LAFC Launch the 'LAFC Food Delivery Service' Program
The Los Angeles Football Club (LAFC) has teamed up with the Club's local restaurant and bar partners to deliver free meals to members of the Black & Gold family that have been adversely affected by COVID-19. The delivery program is supported by the Club's recently announced Black & Gold Community Fund.
"We are proud to continue our efforts to be a force for good in the L.A. community by offering free meals to those in need," said LAFC President and Co-Owner Tom Penn. "We thank our generous bar and restaurant partners for their support and commitment to assist our treasured members of our Black & Gold community."
Through the program, LAFC will provide 16 meals, twice a week, to local families in need. Meals will be delivered on Tuesdays and Fridays and will include enough food to feed a family of four. Meal recipients are determined through the Black & Gold Community Fund application.
The program kicked off on May 5 with food deliveries from bar partners Casa De Pancho Mexican Grill and Fresh Off the Hook and restaurant partner Seoul Sausage. This week will include deliveries from Bludso's BBQ, JP23 and R Bar. Each bar partner meal will come with free LAFC merchandise and personalized note from the Club.
All participating LAFC restaurants and bar partners are currently open during this time for food pick-ups and some deliveries. Contact the restaurants below:

Prior to the launch of the program, the Club began working with restaurant partner Seoul Sausage to offer free meals to members of the 3252 community in need. During the week of April 20th, the Club teamed up with Seoul Sausage, Legends and Melissa's Organics to offer a specialized #FoodEqualsFamily LAFC BBQ Pork Belly Kit which included an LAFC hat. Sharing the goal of being a force for good in the community, Seoul Sausage has donated 12 meals per week since mid-April.
