Here is a great opportunity to help our friends at The Volunteer Center with Food for Kids, providing food to disadvantaged families.


A local organization is looking for the community’s help in bringing awareness to a much needed topic.

Food for Kids, a program through the Volunteer Center in Torrance delivers non-perishable foods to Title 1 elementary school children in the Compton and Long Beach Unified School Districts.

The food is given to disadvantaged families to be eaten over the weekend. Every Friday, the Volunteer Center volunteers assemble and deliver shopping bags to the schools and students. Each bag is filled with ten items of non-perishable foods like pasta, canned tuna, oatmeal, soup, applesauce, rice, beans and cereals. The Volunteer Center is looking for organizations, businesses and persons to host food drives in their communities.

To participate you can contact the Volunteer Center at 310-212-5009.
