If your school requires you to put in community service hours in the greater Conejo Valley area, you can meet your obligation by helping the local community food bank called Manna. Our purpose revolves around the idea that neighbors feed their neighbors in times of need, and you have a chance to help us meet our goal.
The first step is to visit the official Manna website and click the “I Want to Help” page. You can download a free Food Drive Toolkit offering details about how to start your own student run food drive. Once you have established your food drive, you can register the food drive online. Advertise your food drive by distributing flyers to family members, neighbors, acquaintances and businesses.
Another option for getting involved in community service is to help at the Manna food pantry from 8:30 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. on a Saturday morning. Manna provides you with free training about working in the pantry as a student volunteer.
If you want to volunteer for pantry work, you need to act promptly because available volunteer positions are limited to a small group of students. For more information about the “Students Stamping Out Hunger” food drive program or other ways to earn community service hours in the Thousand Oaks, California, area, please contact Manna.
