VOLUNTEER TO SERVE FOOD TO THE HOMELESS AND WORKING POOR IN DOWNTOWN LONG BEACH

The UCO Drop-in-Center is a community center for homeless people and the working poor in down town Long Beach. It provides a haven from the weather and the harsh conditions of the streets on Sunday afternoons. For full details check out http://www.urbancommunityoutreach.org/dic.

This opportunity is for Sunday food service. THIS IS FOR EVERY SUNDAY. The volunteer day is 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM. You may join for a couple of hours or stay for the day. You can come and go during these times. Food prep starts at 8 am, and that is also when there is great need for help.

If you are interested just show up ([masked]).

PARKING: Park in the lot at Cedar & 3d in one of the designed spots for the church or on the street (free on sundays).

 

No open toed shoes or sandals!

    Please come at 8:00 a.m. If you can. The need is greatest in the morning.

    I was just wondering how to get involved in this? I have two friends and myself that would really like to help. What are the best times to come?

      I actually coordinate there. From 8am to about 11am is mostly preparation of food, after, it's seeing up, serving the community food, and by 3:30 we'll gradually start cleaning up. There is so much to do!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
