Volunteer at a Pantry

Volunteer at a Pantry

Just a few hours of your time can make a huge difference in the lives of the people we serve!

The Food Bank relies on a network of more than 600 partner agencies to distribute food to people experiencing hunger in Los Angeles County. These agencies are soup kitchens, pantries, shelters, community centers, senior centers, churches, schools and other organizations that receive food from the Food Bank and then distribute it in their local communities to those in need.

Agencies are responsible for organizing, staffing, and leading their distributions, and many of them would benefit from the help of volunteers.

Duties

Duties vary by agency, but generally include helping receive, inventory, and stock food products on the days they receive food or pick up food from the Food Bank. On the days they distribute food, volunteers help set up and distribute food directly to clients.

Requirements and Skills

Must be at least 14 and physically be able to bend, stoop, and lift up to 40 lbs. Volunteers must also be able to stand on their feet for several hours at a time.
