According to LAist, you are able to donate take-out utensils to help feed those that are hungry! LA Sanitation & Environment assistant division manager Jennifer Pinkerton says:

“We have a lot of shelters and other programs in Los Angeles designed to assist those who are less fortunate, and some of these facilities — missions, shelters — don’t have dishwashing facilities.”

Last year the LA Sanitation & Environment held a donation drive looking for utensils and collected 2,500 pounds! If you have extra take-out utensils find out how to donate here!
