*STOCK THE PANTRY: Sort Food with L.A. Regional Food Bank

Location: Los Angeles CA, 90058

Date: 11/16/2019 Spots Remaining: 0

Description

*UPDATE: The LA Regional Food Bank is still committed to getting food to those who need it during the spread of COVID-19.  The health and safety of volunteers is our top priority and we are taking necessary precautions listed below.

WHAT: Help provide L.A.'s homeless community with access to food by volunteering at a local food bank

ABOUT LARFB: LARFB provides food support to numerous community agencies serving Los Angeles, ranging from large homeless shelters that feed hundreds of people a day to small daycare programs. It is the second largest foodbank operating in the United States. https://www.lafoodbank.org/

VOLUNTEER RESPONSIBILITIES: Come on down with fellow L.A. Works volunteers to sort, stack and shelve valuable food to distribute to the hungry throughout Los Angeles. Make someone's day or dinner!

IMPACT: Volunteering at the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank is one of the best volunteer opportunities in LA. By donating a few hours of your time, you’ll help us provide food for the 2 million people in Los Angeles County who face food insecurity. Volunteers help us by boxing, sorting and gleaning food that is later distributed through our network of more than 600 agency partners to our neighbors in need.
