Volunteers work as little as a single 2-hour shift per month doing one of the following activities:

  • Scheduling other volunteer time, schedules or shifts
  • Sorting and stocking various food items to be distributed
  • Filling food bags for clients and assisting clients in loading food into their vehicles
  • Driving to pick up food shipments and donations
  • Greeting clients and assisting with their sign-in for services

Food Donations:

Items are collected at the local churches noted on the About Us page, during various food drives including the annual Postal Drive.
Donations will also be accepted at the LACare facility.

  • Various canned foods
  • Dry foods such as rice, beans, pasta, (in 1 lb. packages please)
  • Canned meats such as tuna, chili, salmon, ham, chicken, etc.
  • Dry cereal, oatmeal, macaroni and cheese

Money Donations:

All donations are tax deductible and greatly appreciated.

LACare has low overhead plus all foods are purchased for $ .15/per pound. Each $1 donated buys more than 6.5 pounds of food.
