You can make a difference

Hear how Nourish LA helped the Walden family

“We’re a family of five and we’ve been collecting groceries from Nourish LA for the last 4 months. This has been an incredible help for our family, specially because we have a newborn and need to buy formula. Given inflation, it’s really difficult to get all we need with our current income. I can’t thank you enough for all the hard work behind this great organization.”

HOW IT WORKS

To sign up, please read, fill out and submit the Nourish LA Volunteer waiver form linked below. You will be added to our volunteer database and, if you have opted in, you will receive a roll call text message each Wednesday that will allow you to choose a shift at our UCLA food giveaway. Please arrive for your selected shift on the day of the drive and check in with our onsite coordinator, who will sign you in and issue you a green vest.

While it is not mandatory to sign up for roll call texts, volunteers who have not done so or have not chosen a shift may be turned away if we are at capacity, so please respond to our roll call texts to guarantee a place for you on site!
