On Jan. 17, Karamo Brown of “Queer Eye” competed on “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire,” hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, and answered 11 questions on the hot seat, earning $125,000.
This season of “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire” features celebrities who exclusively donate their winnings to the charities of their choice. Brown chose to play for the Hollywood Food Coalition, a nonprofit that has served hundreds of meals to the hungry in Hollywood every night for the past 34 years.
Brown regularly serves as a volunteer preparing meals at HFC, and hasn’t forgotten the time he spent struggling to feed his own family.
“I remember working 13 hours a day and still not having enough money to cover all my bills and put food on the table for me and my two sons. Those moments were the moments where I depended on the kindness of others. It was organizations like Hollywood Food Coalition that got me through those moments. I was helped in my time of need, and now it is time to pay it forward,” Brown said.
The mission of the Hollywood Food Coalition is to feed and serve the immediate needs of the hungry every night of the year so they can build better lives. Since 1987, the Hollywood Food Coalition has served Los Angeles’ most vulnerable residents by providing healthy and delicious meals along with access to basic daily needs, such as clothing, backpacks, sleeping bags and hygiene items, as well as assistance and referrals for housing and unemployment.
The Coalition’s nightly Community Dinner program provides over 150 people with their most pressing needs each night, a nourishing meal and, once a week, the UCLA Mobile Clinic visits the Community Dinner to provide medical treatment and assistance.
