El Nido Family Centers

  • 6 people are interested

Have some free time and want to help nourish the community? El Nido Family Centers is looking for volunteers for our Culinary To-Go program. We feed 40-50 families a week with our grocery boxes and accompanying recipes designed for families to cook healthy meals together during our interactive, online classes.
We have one on-site and one remote opportunity:

Onsite Grocery Box Packing:
Monday or Tuesday 9am-12pm: Help pack grocery boxes for 40-50 families.
Thursday 11am-2pm: Portioning ingredients for the grocery boxes of the coming week.
Everything takes place in a socially-distanced environment, at our Pacoima FamilySource Center kitchen in the north San Fernando Valley.

Virtual Client Support for Grocery Box Distribution (Livescan Fingerprint test required):
We need assistance with calling prospective clients and telling them about our support program, collecting testimonials, as well as remote texting to follow-up with clients and remind them that their grocery boxes are ready for pick-up.

Interested in supporting our project?
