*Drop Off Sack Lunches for Skid Row

Location: Los Angeles CA, 90014

Date: 4/16/2020 Spots Remaining: 433


WHAT:  Make and drop off sack lunches for people experiencing homelessness near the Midnight Mission.

ABOUT THE MIDNIGHT MISSION:  The Midnight Mission is a comprehensive homeless shelter and homeless services provider.  They need your help now more than ever - they went from feeding roughly 400 people at each meal to feeding 1800 people each meal.  And with food supplies scarcer than before, the Midnight Mission needs your help feeding the hungry.

THE VOLUNTEER PROJECT:  In compliance with social distancing protocols, you'll make 10+ sack lunches at home and them drop them off at the mission between 7am and 11am.  (You can drop off later than 11am, but meals will be given out the next day.)  You won't be in contact with anyone, but can still have a powerful impact.


  • Ham, turkey, or beef sandwich with light mayo/mustard (To be cautious of nut allergies, we request no peanut butter and jelly sandwiches please)
  • 2+ side snacks (chips, fruit, granola bars, cheese, etc)
  • No need to include beverages or napkins (those are covered by the Mission)
ADDITIONAL ITEMS THE MISSION IS IN NEED OF:  In addition to your sack lunches, any donations of the following items would be greatly appreciated:
  • Disposable, multi-compartment to-go food containers
  • Disposable lunch bags
  • Disposable utensils (forks, spoons, knives)
  • Loaves of bread
  • Plastic wrap
  • Produce bags
  • Re-sealable storage bags
  • Single serving beverages
  • Antibacterial disinfecting wipes
  • Disposable gloes
  • EPA approved antibacterial disinfecting cleaners
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Infrared no-touch thermometers
  • Surgical masks
