Drop In Center @ First Congregational Church of Long Beach
241 Cedar Ave, Long Beach, CA 90802

Volunteers are needed: in morning with food/meal prep (9 am - 1 pm) and/or in afternoon with serving lunch and distributing items (1 pm - 3pm)

No need to bring any food. Everything is provided by them (ingredients, knives, cutting boards, utensils, gloves, etc.)

Volunteers can choose when to arrive and how long to stay. The morning involves preparing the meal (washing & cutting vegetables, preparing other ingredients, cooking, etc.). The afternoon is for serving food, cleaning up, etc. Anyone is welcome to help. Even though this is at a church venue, being Christian or religious is not required nor expected.

Children 16 and under are welcome, but must have one parent or guardian for every three children attending.

Wearing appropriate clothing is recommended and closed-toe shoes are required (no sandals, flip flops, etc.)

Street parking is usually free on Sundays, but please check signs/meters to confirm.

To get to the kitchen area, please avoid the church entrance. Instead, on the side of the church building, on Cedar Ave, next to the brick wall, look for an archway and door.


Enter through the steel mesh gates...Go to the courtyard where you will see glass windows and our dining area to the left. Sign in and a coordinator will get you started.

If you get lost please DM me.
