Volunteer at the LA Foodbank

How about a little charity work – both rewarding and a good workout?! We will be volunteering at the LA Food Bank to sort food or prepare boxes to be delivered to families in the LA area in need. We'll be working from around 8:30 am until about 12pm.

Disclaimer: This is hard work...you may have to lift heavy items and you will be standing the whole time!  You may break a nail or two (teehee).  Also, our group may get separated into smaller groups of 2-3 people, so please be patient with the situation and remember...this is for charity.

I have done this many times now with this and other groups - it is actually pretty fun.  If you have spare cans of food, please consider bringing them to donate. No expired stuff please.

Some important notes:

1) Be sure to wear closed toe shoes (tennis shoes are great), this is a must! LA Regional Food Bank coordinators will turn you away if you do not have proper foot wear on!

2) Please DON'T BE A NO SHOW...the food bank counts on us to show up to help when we say we are coming.  RSVPs will be closed by the Thursday before the event. Please be committed to the event if you sign up.

3) All volunteers must register and sign in at the event.

To volunteer - go to this link:

    I'm sorry to change my RSVP at the last minute, but I injured (well, re-injured) my shoulder pretty badly a few hours ago. :( I was really looking forward to it, so disappointed. Have fun! Hopefully I can make it up another time.

    Thanks for setting this up. Unless you get there early enough there may be spots on their lot otherwise parking along the street.

    March 21, 2014

    • Solange S.

      OK, thanks, is the street parking metered?

      March 22, 2014

    • Nina P.

      The street parking is free. This is a commercial area.

    Hi! I did this once a couple of years ago and it was a fun morning. Thanks for organizing it! just wondering if the address above is the correct one, or is it 1734 E. 41st Street, Los Angeles, 90058 (from the LA Food Bank website)?

    March 22, 2014

    • Nina P.

      They have 2 locations. We are going to the one that is on 54th Street as noted above.

      March 22, 2014

  • Solange S.

    I misread the ending time as 12 midnight, that's why I asked. LOL That's fine, then. Thank you!

    March 22, 2014

  • Solange S.

    Can we come at any time during the specified time period? Also, what is the parking situation? TY

    March 21, 2014

    • Nina P.

      Everyone must come at the specified start time 815 am, but you can sneak out early if you need to. Usually time flies though, so most people stay until noon. See Thuy's answer above about parking.

    Anyone wanting to carpool from the West side, WeHo/Beverly Hills?

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
