Motion Picture, Television Fund Holding Food Distribution for Out-of-Work Industry Workers on Aug. 24

-

In response to the ongoing work stoppage impacting many in the entertainment industry, the Motion Picture & Television Fund (MPTF) will host a drive-thru food distribution event to serve out-of-work entertainment industry workers impacted by the ongoing strikes.

WHEN:

Thursday, August 24th
Food Drive: 10 a.m. PST – 1 p.m. PST
Media Check-in Available beginning at 9AM

WHERE: MPTF Campus: 23388 Mulholland Drive, Woodland Hills, CA 91364

Please RSVP to Katie Kornfield at [email protected] today if planning to attend tomorrow’s event or have any questions.

Media Check-In: Traffic control volunteers will be posted to assist media in getting around the blind corner of the parking lot to media check-in which will be facing El Canon just outside of CBH (Building 28).

Due to the sensitivity of the event, we ask that you not approach the cars in-line for food or product pick-up. At the media check-in tent, we can connect you with Teamsters and IATSE members or Leadership for interviews.

Entities involved in the organization of this event:

MPTF: Donation of campus and staff to organize event.

Teamsters & IATSE: Union members volunteering onsite to support fellow union brothers and sisters picking up donated items.

Labor Community Services: Non-profit dedicated to orchestrating food programs for out-of-work or unemployed workers. Non-profit arm of the Los Angeles Federation of Labor.
