Joint Statement from the City of Malibu and Los Angeles County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl's Office
"We are very pleased to announce that men and women experiencing homelessness will be able to receive meals in Malibu again as part of a new joint partnership between the County of Los Angeles and the City of Malibu. Specific details are still being worked out, but our plan is to begin providing meals at the Malibu court house. We will be working with the Sheriff's Department and many neighbors to ensure that security is provided in all the surrounding areas. We want to thank the many community residents, nonprofits and outreach workers who patiently worked with us to make sure that a safe space could be identified to feed and engage individuals experiencing homelessness. Research has shown us that providing meals can be a first step in identifying and delivering other types of assistance to people who need it."
