Help Distribute Thanksgiving Meals with Heart of Compassion Distribution

With the joyous season of holidays upon us, Heart of Compassion knows there are many families in need who need a helping hand in these difficult times. They will be hosting a Thanksgiving Turkey & Food Drive Giveaway to help more than 1,000 families put a nice Thanksgiving meal on their table this year. This event will include live music, djs, and many giveaways. This will be a drive-thru event, due to COVID precautions. Recipients will be able to stay in their vehicles and drive through the parking lot and volunteers will help load groceries and Thanksgiving fixings into waiting vehicles. As this will be a much larger event than their weekly public food distributions, they will need many more volunteers than other events they host.

Help the Hungry Find Food with Online Reseach with Food Oasis

Help the hungry find food by calling, emailing, and researching food pantries and soup kitchens for Food Oasis. Food Oasis is a website created by Hack for LA that aims to make it easy for people to both access and donate food, closing the food redistribution loop. This virtual volunteer opportunity occurs via Zoom. It starts off with a training where you'll learn about food insecurity and also how to gather the needed information. After that, you'll all spend an hour doing independent research. Finally, all volunteers will regroup to discuss. In the following week after the session, you are expected to follow up with any organizations you didn't catch. Weekdays are usually good. Los Angeles county has the largest number of food insecure people in the nation and yet wastes over one million tons of food a year! Your research will put mechanisms in place to stop that. REQUIREMENTS: You must be able to follow up with any non-responsive organizations throughout the following week.
