Quick Overview: We are currently looking for volunteer photographers to help us document our story!

Mission: Foodcycle LA works to recover food from all over LA County, and it involves a large cast of dedicated community members. We'd like to have photographers help us show our story by highlighting all the pieces of the puzzle. Photo opportunities would include photos of food donors, volunteers, or community groups.

Volunteer Roles & Responsibilities: They will go onsite to take photos of the volunteers, food drive, etc. FCLA staff may not be present during the photo shoot but will provide direction and coordinate prior to the event.

Requirements: Photographers will be expected to provide their own transportation and equipment to the event.

Additional Information: Foodcycle will schedule and coordinate photographers with photo opportunities based on their availability and location. Photographers will meet with FCLA staff virtually to get specifics on the project and photo opportunity.

Locations we're looking for include: South LA, South Bay, Westside, Downtown, NELA, SFV and more.
