Volunteer @ The L.A. Food Bank + Lunch TBA

  • Jul 6, 2013 · 8:15 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

I wanted to personally invite you to come out and join me as I celebrate my birthday at the L.A. Food Bank and then, enjoy lunch at a nearby restaurant. I can't think of a better way of celebrating this day than with friends and giving back to the community.

We will volunteer at the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank assembling food packages for thousands of low income seniors, women with infants, and children in Los Angeles County. The food packages consist of food items like fresh produce, canned fruit, canned vegetables, and other food items.

By giving just a little of our time, we can make a big difference in our community.

Parking is available at the site but carpooling is HIGHLY recommended as there are VERY limited parking spaces.

Lunch Follows @

NBC Seafood Restaurant

404 S Atlantic Blvd

Monterey Park, CA 91754

    To new friends and old ones, it was great seeing you at the volunteer event. I genuinely appreciate you coming out to give your time and energy for this great cause. And for those who joined us for lunch and Fluff Ice, thank you. To all of you . . . may your kindness return to you in the same beautiful way it was offered.

    Just got off the phone with the L.A. Food Bank. For those that did not register, they can register in the morning but you must do it before 8am. You can still do it online, so disregard the 4pm deadline. They're not going to be turning away anyone. Thanks!

    Hello Craig,

    As a reminder, please have ALL of your volunteers register through your group's registration link on our website as soon as possible. We will be closing off the registration links by 4pm today. If your volunteers do not register through your group's registration link, they will NOT be on the volunteer list for this coming Saturday morning. Also, the project start time is at 8:30am so please have your volunteers arrive no later than 8:15am for parking, check in and sign in. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. See your group this Saturday!

      For our 30+ group, how about a restaurant in Chinatown or Little Tokyo? Casual, tasty, well-priced and they might even sing Happy Birthday. :)
