Description

We welcome volunteers to help us load grocery bags with fresh produce, frozen meats, dry goods or hygiene items and distribute to our APLA Health clients.  We also have opportunities to lead recreational activities to interact with our clients while they wait for their groceries: Music, Jenga, Connect Four, Cornhole, etc.  

We are always looking for volunteers to dedicate time at or food pantry, NOLP.  The Food Pantry is open on Wednesdays and Fridays from 9 a.m.–3:30 p.m. at the David Geffen Center located at 611 S. Kingsley Dr., Los Angeles, CA 90005.  (Please note: NOLP is closed every first Friday of the month).  We welcome a half day or full day of service!  w

APLA Health’s Vance North Necessities of Life Program (NOLP) started as a food voucher program in 1986 and has since become the nation’s largest network of food pantries for people with HIV/AIDS.  It is currently operating out of eight locations throughout Los Angeles County. Clients of NOLP receive pre-bagged groceries that include fresh dairy, frozen meats, fresh produce, and an assortment of canned and dry goods, as well as hygiene items and cleaning supplies. NOLP clients also receive bilingual, one-on-one nutritional counseling and nutrition classes.  NOLP provides groceries to over 1,700 clients who live on a limited income. 

 

We continue to monitor the latest guidance from the L.A. County Department of Public Health and the California State Government about COVID-19.

 Our priority is to keep you and our community safe and healthy. Public health recommendations for the current COVID-19 outbreak in Los Angeles County are changing every day (sometimes more frequently).  

We have paused all volunteer opportunities until further notice.  Thank you.
