Help United Way of Greater Los Angeles, the National Association of Letter Carriers, Los Angeles County Federation of Labor, and Labor Community Services stamp out hunger! The volunteer-led food drive is the nation’s largest single-day event that spreads out across America to help provide assistance to Americans who are struggling with hunger.
On Saturday, May 12, Angelenos will place bags of non-perishable food on their porches. Those bags will go from porch to post offices to a massive warehouse in Bell, CA. Hundreds of volunteers are needed at local post offices to load the donations onto trucks.
Sign up for this family friendly event and flex your muscles to help feed Angelenos in need. Minors under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
In 2017, volunteers collected 80 million pounds of food was collected, which brought the grand total of donations to more than 1.5 billion pounds of food collected since the drive began in 1992.
The program runs 5/14 through 6/22, Monday through Saturday. Both morning and afternoon shifts are available.
