Beginning today, March 19th, the owner of Mozza restaurant is switching her restaurant at the corner of Melrose and Highland into a temporary relief center for disrupter foodservice workers, with free meals and supplies.

Offering daily free meals and basic supplies such as diapers and canned foods, Nancy Silverton is providing aid for restaurant-industry professionals who’ve suffered a recent layoff or considerable reduced hours due to the virus.

Seven nights a week for the foreseeable future, Silverton and her team will prep 300 to-go meals each evening, with pickup hours of 5:30 to 8:30pm, and meals limited to two per person (unless a guest is facing an emergency situation). Those in need should bring valid ID and proof of recent restaurant employment, such as a paystub, and arrive as early as possible; meals will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.

Mozza is located at 6602 Melrose Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90038

Should a line form, the Mozza team requests guests maintain the recommended distance of six feet of space between people.

Free, limited supplies will also be available, including toilet paper, baby food, wipes, diapers, Tylenol and non-perishable canned foods. If you would like to donate supplies to the cause, you can email Kate Green at

A handful of local restaurants, bars and food organizations have also helped feed impacted members of the service industry, including Thunderbolt, which gave out 20 meals to those in need yesterday, and KinderGreens, who are sending chefs boxes of fresh produce to eat at home.
