Episode 040: Healing Homelessness, Joining a Movement, and Making Mindfulness Accessible with LunchOnMe Founder and Activist LaRayia Gaston
This week on the Alchemized Life Podcast we welcome LaRayia Gaston, founder of Lunch On Me - a Los Angeles based non profit dedicated to ending starvation while providing opportunities to enrich the mind, body and spirit of LA's homeless community.
Lunch On Me brings nutritious and organic meals to skid row six days a week, every week and reach 10,000 people a month. They distribute organic food that would otherwise be wasted in order to create delicious and quality meals.
Their initiative also includes yoga classes, community parties and healing gatherings for women. They believe that radical self-love is the foundation for permanent healing.
In this episode we talk about LaRayia's story and how she started Lunch on Me. We talk about the importance of sharing different wellness tools for those in need and why it's necessary in making a change in homelessness. In this episode you’ll also learn about ways to cultivate connection in your own communities to inspire change and remove separation.
