Food For Families Volunteer

Time Commitment: 1-6 hours per month

Food For Families volunteers pick up fresh chicken, eggs, and produce from wholesalers, and local farmers, bring it to a central location, sort it, and hand deliver it to families in need. The program provides 7-10 days worth of fresh food to approximately 500 families every month. The pandemic has limited the number of volunteers we can have at one time. Contact us to learn more!
