AWM SoCal Media Day At the LA Food Bank

Fight hunger and give hope this holiday season.

Join Alliance for Women in Media SoCal (AWM SoCal) for a morning of volunteer fun and community service at the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank, Saturday, December 3rd from 8:30am - Noon.

Members of the local media and entertainment community are invited to help box food and create awareness for the LA Food Bank's ever-increasing need for volunteers and donations.
Former Media Day volunteers include actor Ajay Mehta (Royal Pains) and Kathy Joosten (Desperate Housewives, The West Wing)

About 680 agencies partner with the Food Bank to distribute food to hungry people in L.A. County.

Volunteers are needed to help sort, inspect, and repackage donated food items from local food drives.

It takes a lot of hands to move a million pounds of food every week.

Past Media Day volunteers include actress Maureen McCormick (The Brady Bunch) and American author, television personality and philanthropist, Candy Spelling

Why is volunteering at the Los Angeles Food Bank important? Because 1 in 6 people in L.A. County experiences hunger.

Help us fight hunger in our community!

As the holiday season approaches, please include this important message in your media outreach to the general public.

Hunger affects young and old alike. Due to the rising cost of living, even families with two incomes often can't make ends meet or put enough food on the table.

"We're calling on our media and entertainment community to lend a hand and help us spread the word that volunteers and donations are needed."

Actor Johnny Whitaker (Tom Sawyer, Family Affair) with Wendy Burch, KTLA 5 Reporter

Join us for a good cause and lend a helping hand!
