VOLUNTEER RESPONSIBILITIES: L.A. Works volunteers bring a warm, hearty dinner to some of the 1,800 homeless served daily. Throughout the shift, volunteers help to prep the kitchen, prepare, serve, clean, and organize the kitchen. Volunteers may also help prep future meals or food materials alongside kitchen staff.
