  • Description


    Come to Central California and Help Impoverished Nations

    We are a non-profit organization that processes and ships food to approximately 100 poor nations. We need more volunteers to process the food. We are open most of the year, have a variety of jobs and are flexible regarding the length of your stay. We are located near Sequoia National Park---home of the largest trees on earth! We are also close to Yosemite National Park. The hospitality, food and accommodations are excellent. This is a great place to stay. For leisure, and on weekends, sometimes people plan trips to visit Sequoia or Yosemite. Therefore, many volunteers have visited a National Park while they volunteered with us.
    Please contact me if you need further information.
