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 1.4 million people in Los Angeles 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.
