Best Place to Volunteer Los Angeles 2013 

Project Angel Food

Founded in 1989 in response to the AIDS crisis, Project Angel Food's staff and volunteers cook and deliver nutritious meals to people with AIDS, cancer and other life-threatening illnesses in Los Angeles County. It's important work: Since its founding, Project Angel Food has delivered more than 8 million meals to sick people. Eighty percent of the organization's work is volunteer-driven, which means it needs you. It doesn't matter if you know how to cook — staffers will teach you in the Project Angel Food kitchen. You've been wondering what to do with your weekends, and you've had it with meaningless hours spent shopping. Do something that feels right. You also can deliver meals or help recruit other volunteers through the organization's outreach program. With services offered from the Antelope Valley to Long Beach, there are plenty of places for you to meet people who need a smile, a meal and your help. 922 Vine St., Hlywd. (323) 845-1800, angelfood.org. —Patrick Range McDonald
