Job Posting – La Mesa Food Pantry Lead
La Mesa Presbyterian Church

The La Mesa Food Pantry opened in 2008 as a response to the hunger needs of the La Mesa community. That need grew during the pandemic - over the first 6 months of 2021, we have helped about 2,200 families giving out 15 tons of food. As the Lead for the La Mesa Food Pantry, you will make sure the food gets to those families, with the support of community partners and volunteers. Hunger can and should be eradicated; help make that a reality in the La Mesa community.
