West Oakland Punks with Lunch is a guerilla not-for-profit Harm reduction outreach organization providing food and other necessities to people experiencing homelessness.
Anyone and everyone is welcome to volunteer with us! We just ask a few simple guidelines to keep PWL running smoothly.
Please come wearing closed toed shoes and dressed appropriately for the weather. We ask that you show up with a non-judgemental, come as you are attitude. Be ready to work hard and have fun!

Sunday: Fixed Sites
Meet at: 2630 Union St. Hours: Prep 1pm-3pm, Distribution: 3pm-6pm
We have two fixed sites on Sundays. One at 35th and Peralta St. from 3:30pm-4:15pm and the other at 4:30pm-5:15pm. Ideally we stay on time, but we don’t beat ourselves up if we are a little late. You have the option of staying for only prep, only distribution, or BOTH! Sundays are the perfect day to get to know our organization for the day, or continue working with us to grow as on organization.
