Volunteer - Day of Giving

Join us to help LA Tasters take a BITE out of hunger!

Saturday, April 12, 2014

8:30 am to 12:00 pm for a Day of Giving

We will volunteer at the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank assembling food packages for over 23,000 low income seniors, women with infants, and children in Los Angeles County. The food packages consist of food items like canned fruit, canned vegetables, rice, cereal and other non-perishable food items.

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

    Hi,

    April 6

    • Lisa

    Hi Lisa, do you know if any of us will be working in those large walk-in refrigerators? Just want to know if I should bring a heavy jacket even if it's 70+ degrees outside.

    April 2

    • Lisa

      I haven't worked in any refrigerated area when I have volunteered before so I think just dress comfortably for the day.

  • Santos

    I have volunteer on Skid Row handing out water bottles and peanut butter sandwiches. Am I allow to bring water bottles to hand out?

    March 28

    • Lisa

      Greetings. Actually we are not handing out any food to those in need. We are packaging, sorting or stacking food donated to the Food Bank for drivers to deliver at another time. We are only working in-house so to speak. Let me know if you have any more questions.

  • thuy Y.

    March 20

    • Lisa
