A Korean American student volunteer organization provided a warm Korean lunch to 800 homeless at skidrow’s Midnight Mission in Los Angeles Saturday.

The team from Pacific American Volunteer Association World, or PAVA, included 55 students and about 10 volunteers.

The free lunch, sponsored by the Korea Times, included bulgogi and rice, bread, salad, fruits and juice.

“This is an event we’ve been carrying out for five years to teach students the true meaning of sharing and volunteering,” said PAVA President Wang Deok-jeong.

Wang said they took care to use the best ingredients for bulgogi, with Global Cuisine Academy Head Lee Myun-hee participating from Korea.

Lee Seung-chan, a high school junior and one of the event volunteers, said sharing food made him realize the happiness of giving.

PAVA plans to continue its holiday volunteering by cleaning up Griffith Park on Jan. 3 and Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. on Jan. 17.
