Hillary Cohen: CEO/Founder/Board Member Hillary has been a DGA Assistant Director for over 10 years. Off the set Hillary is constantly working for ways to help others. During COVID19, she started sewing facemasks donated over 2,000 to frontline workers. Every Day Action is 10 years in the making, and now it’s a reality.
Every Day Action is a new not-for-profit organization working to re-allocate the food waste on film sets directly to those living on the streets of Los Angeles, Long Beach, and the San Fernando Valley. Founded and run by two DGA Assistant Directors, donating leftover food from production has never been easier. You give us the call sheet; we’ll do the rest!
We manage pick-up coordination, food transportation including packaging, and work all shifts (Breakfast to Second and even Third Meal). Our board members are working professionals who mostly work in the entertainment industry and we employ Production Assistants and Background actors as pick-up/drop off coordinators while they are in between jobs. All of us together can make a huge difference in the lives of LA’s most vulnerable. Join us in being part of that change!
Please consider a paid subscription to this daily podcast. Everyday I will interview 2 or more expert guests on a wide range of issues. I will continue to be transparent about my life, issues and vulnerabilities in hopes we can relate, connect and grow together.
