Pack grocery bags for APLA Clients and assist in distributing groceries to clients.


APLA Health's Vance North Necessities of Life Program (NOLP) started as a food voucher program in 1986 and has since become the nation's largest network of food pantries for people with HIV/AIDS. It is currently operating out of 15 locations throughout Los Angeles County. Clients of NOLP receive pre-bagged groceries that include fresh dairy, frozen meats, fresh produce, and an assortment of canned and dry goods, as well as hygiene items and cleaning supplies. NOLP clients also receive bilingual, one-on-one nutritional counseling and nutrition classes. NOLP provides groceries to over 1,700 clients who live on a limited income.


Pack dry goods, produce, frozen meat, and hygiene products in grocery bags for our APLA Health clients. By donating a few hours of your time, you are vital in helping us distribute groceries to clients in the Los Angeles area.

On August 5, 2021, the State of California Department of Public Health issued a vaccine requirement for all workers in healthcare facilities. This requirement applies to all employees and volunteers at APLA Health & Wellness.

In response, we require that all volunteers provide proof of vaccination before your volunteer day by emailing a copy to Avelasco@aplahealth.org and bring proof with you day of the event to verify with on-site staff. Those without a vaccine card will not be permitted to volunteer. Thank you for being so cooperative.

All volunteers participating in this volunteer opportunity should adhere to the health and safety guidelines outlined here: https://www.laworks.com/health-and-safety
