Upworthy Voices: Jacqueline Norvell is the Brown Bag Lady

Jacqueline Norvell is the founder of Brown Bag Lady, a nonprofit organization that supplies food and essential items to the homeless in Los Angeles.

Once a month, Norvell and a group of volunteers prepare meals to hand out on skid row on first Sundays. The food is always delivered in a brown paper bag with an inspiring quote attached - giving people something to eat and a little bit of hope.

She worked even harder to support the homeless during the COVID-19 pandemic, supplying meals, clothes and supplies more frequently - and she's still making the difference in her Los Angeles community.
