The Backpacks for Kids Program is entirely volunteer-run which means that volunteers play a critical role. Your time and commitment make it possible to provide healthy food to hundreds of children every week during the school year in Culver City for the weekends when they don't have access to school-sponsored breakfasts and lunches.
To volunteer, review our opportunities and fill out the form below.
Volunteers are needed every week in the following four areas to pack and distribute over 200 bags of food each week to the kids in our program:
Picking up Food
Packing Food Bags & Organizing Food
Transporting Food Bags to our Distribution Sites
Distributing Food Bags
Food Drive Volunteering
We sponsor food drives a few times each year to help us stock the shelves in our pantry.
Serving on the Planning Committee
Special Event Volunteering
There are special events at which we need volunteers to help serve on event committees and provide assistance at the events.
We have volunteer opportunities for groups if you want to volunteer with your co-workers, faith-based organization, friends or family.
