Silverlake, CA (April 7th) – New Silverlake development HōM at West Temple partners with Social Lighthouse and blogger Nic Mora to host community driven #HashtagLunchbag event to feed the local homeless of Silverlake and Echo Park on Sunday, April 10th.

The #Hashtaglunchbag movement began with feeding the hungry in Los Angeles in 2012 and has since spread to become a nationwide initiative to provide meals to homeless throughout the country. Sharp Capital, the developer behind HōM, is excited to partner with #HashtagLunchbag and to support to it’s mission to engage local residents and businesses, and to enrich the Silverlake and Echo Park community.

“#HashtagLunchbag was a perfect fit for HōM,” said David Shophet, Principal at Sharp Capital. “With this project being dedicated to inciting communities across the country to work together to be a driving, positive force for change, we could not be more excited to work alongside this phenomenal organization.”

By reaching out to the local businesses and residents that make Silverlake and Echo Park come to life, HōM hopes to build community while doing something positive in the face of a complex and difficult issue.

  1. This is a great idea and very kind thing to do.
    However, it is only one day and people are hungry every day. We need to think of more solutions.
    There is so much food waste in schools and with laws changing, food can be more easily donated without liability issues. I wish the city would be more encouraging, provide incentives, and supply information to schools so they would all be aware and donate unopened food headed for landfills.
    In addition, the lesson the kids are being taught to take food they know they will not eat as mandated by the government and toss it in the trash. This is not only wasteful of our resources, but damaging to the environment as all the food releases methane, causing climate change.
