I, the undersigned adult and any minors listed below, hereby request to be permitted to participate in volunteer activities at the Laguna Food Pantry (“LFP”). Assumption of Risk. I am aware that volunteer activities with LFP involve handling food, unloading deliveries, stocking shelves among other potentially dangerous activities. I understand that such participation presents a risk of injury and I agree to assume any and all risk for injuries arising out of, or related to, participation in the LFP activities and understand that the Released Parties (as defined below) shall NOT be responsible or liable for any injury, damage, loss, or expense to me and/or my property incurred as a result of my participation in such activities. To ensure the health and safety of employees, shoppers, volunteers, and property, LFP requires that volunteers or potential volunteers be able to perform their assignment unimpaired by any substance, including illegal drugs, alcohol, or legal substances that may impact their ability to safely perform their assigned duties or projects. I understand and accept that LFP reserves the right to refuse, for any reason and without explanation, my entrance to their property or my performance of services based on the above-stated policy. I understand and accept that LFP reserves the right to terminate its relationship with me or any minor(s) listed below, as a volunteer without explanation if I violate LFP’s policies and regulations during my time volunteering at any LFP event or property. My signature indicates that I have read and agree without dispute to LFP’s policies and regulations. No Employment/Benefits.

As a condition of participation in the LFP’s activities, on behalf of myself, and my successors and assigns, I hereby agree to forever release, discharge, acquit, hold harmless, and indemnify LFP and its partners, principals, directors, officers, agents, employees, volunteers and representatives and their respective successors and assignees (“Released Parties”) from any and all charges, complaints, claims, demands, obligations, damages, actions, causes of action, suits, rights, costs, losses, debts, expenses, including attorney’s fees and costs, liabilities and indebtedness of every type, kind, nature, description or character, whether known or unknown, suspected or unsuspected, liquidated or unliquidated arising from, under, or related to the negligence of, or any other act or omission of, any of the Released Parties, or otherwise in any way related to, or arising from, participation in LFP activities (“Released Matters”). I acknowledge and agree that the releases made herein constitute final and complete releases of the Released Parties with respect to all Released Matters, and that by signing this Agreement, I am forever giving up the right to sue or attempt to recover money, damages, or any other relief from the Released Parties for all claims I may have with respect to the Released Matters (even if any such claim is unforeseen as of the date hereof).
