They’ve elected officers and have great plans, which will be announced soon, to support the Volunteer Center’s Food For Kids program.
What we do and why we do it
Title One schools supply breakfast and lunch on school days… but who provides for them during the weekends?
No one! Until now.
The Volunteer Center’s Team 100 members deliver non-perishable food to Title One elementary school children in LBUSD. The food is to be consumed over the weekend by these disadvantaged families. Every Friday, we deliver food to hungry elementary school students. Each bag is filled with ten items of non-perishable food, for example: pasta, tuna, oatmeal, soup, applesauce, rice, beans, canned beef, peas and cereals. This provides food for the family for the weekend. Your membership will allow us to feed more students. The goal is to expand the program to help many more families.
