Purpose:

We believe no one should go hungry, so we strive to provide hope to local school-aged children who are identified as homeless under the McKinney-Vento Act. We do this through our weekly nutrition program, We’ve Got Your Back, which provides backpacks full of nutritious food to over 1,000 families to ensure a stable food source, enabling students to go to school ready to learn. Each week we stuff backpacks for families in and around Orange and Los Angeles Counties, and we need your help to make this happen.

·        Sort and package food donations

·        Restock shelves with donated food

Volunteer Requirements:

·        Friendly, organized, and well aligned with our mission to alleviate problems associated with homelessness

·        Comfortable working on your feet and with occasional heavy lifting
