Turn your compassion into action with the Red Cross LA Region:
Volunteer to help with this essential service to distribute free meals. Since the safer-at-home guidelines, the Red Cross has partnered with the LA County Office of Emergency Management to support the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) serve free meals to students at 60 distribution centers until March 31st (or as needed). Several food centers in the communities are set up five days a week for families and children to pick up boxed meals. We have already served more that 2 millions meals!
In addition, we have been able to reach out and engage our friends at World Central Kitchen, the amazing feeding organization led by celebrity chef Jose Andrés. They will be providing upwards of 50,000 meals a day for us to distribute to anyone who comes to the site, helping us reach everyone who is hungry.
We need 160 volunteers per day to help us in these efforts. Please consider signing up today.
The health and well-being of all parties involved is of the utmost concern, and the Red Cross and Los Angeles Unified will be taking many precautions to make sure their safety has been taken into consideration. LAUSD will have thermometers to monitor student and employee health, and everyone will be asked to wash their hands upon arrival and wear masks. Red Cross volunteers will also practice social distancing, wear gloves and maintain a 6-foot distance at the meal distribution sites. We are using the same guidance required by the Department of Public Health and the CDC.
