FOOD: Lucky Duck Meals for the Unsheltered Homeless Program in Chula Vista

Save to Favorites

Lucky Duck Foundation



There are 4,000+ unsheltered homeless individuals on the streets with scarce access to food and water. This initiative provides food and water to outreach workers who distribute it to unsheltered individuals to provide nourishment and water and to ultimately help end their homelessness.

Help sort and load boxes into a "pick-up ready" configuration and then load meals into service providers' vehicles. You can be helpful by taking the direction of a team member and stacking and moving boxes carefully and efficiently. Expect some physical labor. Volunteers typically spend their time moving boxes that weigh about 20 lbs at distances of 5-20 feet (between the pallets and the vehicles). Also don't forget to have some fun and remember why we're out here: to help those who are down on their luck.

Project Requirements & Important Notes

Attire: This project is outside so wearing sun protection is recommended. Always check the weather forecast, but know that it does get hot at the distribution site, especially given the physical nature of the work. Closed-toe boots/sneakers that you feel comfortable moving boxes for an hour in are a must.

Physical Requirements: Able to stand for the duration of the shift and lift boxes that weigh 20-25 pounds.

Avoiding Injury: Poor lifting form will lead to injury and pain. You should only bend with your knees and hips, keep your back straight, and keep your shoulders back. Slowly lift by straightening your hips and knees (not your back). Hold the box as close to your body as possible. Set the box down by bending your knees and hips only (it is very easy to get in the habit of setting boxes down in cars by bending your back).
