Get Involved

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.
