Our Mission

“We are what we repeatedly do.” – Aristotle

Since June 2013, Kapa Foundation has served more than 19,000 meals in the city of Santa Monica. Our effort continues by serving more than 250 hot and cold meals every single week and growing. Join in our fight by learning more about how to become a volunteer or donating to Kapa Foundation.


Learn how we serve and make magic together as a family! Kapa Foundation was built on a family first concept, and the aiding of others has been captured within that as our foundation’s modus operandi.


Get involved, don’t just want the greater good for the world, you can with action, yourself do some grater good for your local world. We’d love to hear from you! Please follow the link to Become a Volunteer.


Kapa focuses on hardy ingredients in our nutritious homeless shelter feedings. Overtime we’ve evolved the ingredients for recipes with a Persian cuisine inspiration, we believe in providing more than just a meal.

Join us on our Mission

Revitalizing the Community

Homelessness has become an epidemic even in a country as wealthy and successful as the United States. We have the ability to reinvigorate our local communities and create a cleaner, safer, more closely knit Santa Monica and greater west L.A. by helping feed the poor and under-privileged. Kapa Foundation is about inspiring change through nothing more than action.

Protecting the Under-Privileged

At the Kapa Foundation we don’t get involved in how or why it happened, we focus on how we can resolve and prevent it from further occurring. Our staff is 100% volunteer based, our Funding is 100% internally based. We’ve done all we can to grow to this point, and we’re now seeking more helping hands to continue aiding those who are having trouble aiding themselves.

Planting Seeds for Change

We focus on getting youth involved in our volunteer work. Helping those in need, while teaching our youth to help create a better future. In a society where youth are constantly engaged by entertainment, individualism, and self-promotion, we strive to provide the invaluable experiences of giving back and engaging with one’s community.
