Location: Los Angeles CA, 90015

Date: 11/14/2019 Spots Remaining: 2


In response to recent developments regarding the spread of COVID-19, also referred to as coronavirus, St. Francis Center is modifying program operations effective immediately.

We are still accepting volunteers and still remain committed to serving our guests in need and to continue to be a center of support and hope. Our priority is to take proactive steps to protect the health and safety of our guests, volunteers, staff, and supporters. You can read more about our modified programs here.

If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Danielle at danielle@sfcla.org


Since 1972, St. Francis Center has provided relief and support to homeless and extremely low-income individuals and families in Los Angeles. Much more than a soup kitchen or a food pantry, we offer a unique range of services to sustain and empower those in need. Welcoming all with joy, dignity and compassion, we dedicate ourselves every day to Serving Hope in our community.

Event Description: Our Food Pantry distribution is part of our Family Well-Being Program. Low-income families and individuals from the community can come once a week for groceries. They select from a collection of grocery items, including a variety of fresh produce, bread, and canned goods. 

Volunteer Roles & Responsibilities: Volunteers will first help staff sort, organize, and shelve grocery items and produce and, second, help distribute them to families and individuals in need. 

Requirements: Wear closed-toe shoes and comfortable clothing.

Time Commitment: 9:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.

Age Restrictions: We are happy to host volunteers ages 8+ (parent/guardian supervision required for volunteers ages 8-13). 
*Please remember to fill out a minor volunteer waiver form if minors (under 18) are attending projects. The form can be found on L.A. Works website Q&A section. 

Benefits: Volunteers have the opportunity to help us "serve hope" in the Los Angeles community, learn about hunger and other issues facing many in the community, and build relationships with our guests, staff and fellow volunteers.

*Court-mandated service hours will NOT be verified unless the hours have been approved by the volunteer coordinator and management. Please email to confirm court-mandated volunteer hours.*
