Get Involved, Give Hope

Without volunteers, the Food Bank would not be able to provide food for thousands of hungry people every week. Get together with a social, church or work group and spend a day with us.

To learn more about becoming a Food Bank volunteer, contact our volunteer coordinator at (323) 234-3030, extension 144 or amartinez@lafoodbank.org.

All volunteers are asked to complete a liability release prior to participating in programs at the Food Bank. Minors must have the release signed by a parent or legal guardian. To download a copy of the release click here.

Minimum age for volunteering is 14 years old.
Volunteers must wear closed toe shoes.
(No sandals or open toe shoes allowed in the warehouse.)

Here are some pictures of groups that have volunteered!

Volunteers are needed for the following:
 

Food Sorting

When product is donated to the Food Bank, it often needs to be sorted, cleaned and repackaged. We call this gleaning. Volunteers are needed to assist with the gleaning process everyday. Our facility is available Monday through Saturday to individuals, groups or organizations of 100 volunteers or less to support this need.

 

 

Work Experience Program

Los Angeles Regional Food Bank provides work experience and on-the-job training to interested individuals. Food Bank volunteers receive support with interviewing techniques, resume writing, job referrals and one-on-one intake with prospective employers.
 

Special Events and Food Drives

Los Angeles Regional Food Bank is constantly involved with Food Drives and Special Events.  Volunteers perform a wide range of duties, depending on the event. 
 

Internships

Many of our departments can use the support of an intern.  Internships include, but are not limited to:
  • Charity Relations
  • Development/Event Planning
  • Telemarketing
  • Product Donations Marketing
  • Public Relations
  • Nutrition Education
