Since August 2020, the mutual aid group Bicycle Meals has been delivering bags of sandwiches, fruit, snacks, masks, and hand sanitizer to unhoused residents of Koreatown. But now volunteers are back to work as the economy reopens, and they can’t donate so much time preparing meals and pedaling them to those in need. Also, the venture is largely self-funded, and contributions from local businesses aren’t constant. So how will the organization pivot post-pandemic?
