Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
We are seeking volunteer teams and individuals to prepare and serve a Thursday or Saturday Food for Friends hot meal. If you are looking for an opportunity for your business, or as an individual to volunteer or want to gather a group of friends, we have a place for you to cook and serve. Preparation begins at 9:00 am and we serve at noon. Join a community of folks who love to cook for, converse with, serve and be served by the community around them. We are located at 530 W Fullerton Parkway in the Lincoln Park neighborhood.
This is an excellent opportunity for people to volunteer in a fun, safe, environment, either on a regular or periodic basis. We open our doors to anyone who is in need of a hot meal, and are funded by donors and grants, with no Government assistance.
We ask that groups assist us as you prepare for your experience by conducting a canned food drive and bring with you so our food pantry, will be stocked for our guests.
