Ready Getting Ready for the Weekend
Want a job you can do whenever it suits you? Bake some of the “cake” that the kids love so much. We have three very healthy recipes you can bake at home, cut into squares, and freeze! Make some children happy and healthy too!
Wednesday morning Food Bank shoppers
Be one of 2-3 people who “shop” for the food we need each Wednesday morning from 9-11:30 at Second Harvest Food Bank. It’s simple, all written out and just involves choosing the food and transporting it to the central location and putting it up! Click on the icon to read more.
Set Pack the Lunches
Saturday packing lunches
Join a group of people each Saturday morning who put produce in boxes and assemble meals for Sunday. Sign up your whole family or a group of friends, all ages! Easy assembly line work at our central location with lots of fun and laughter!
Sunday morning deliveries 10:00-12:00
Two people are needed to arrive at 505 Deacon Blvd at 9:45 AM, load up lunches and produce, deliver to six sites with really good directions, then return about 11:45 AM. At some of the sites, you will be giving lunches to church volunteers who feed neighborhood children later on, and at some sites you will be handing lunches directly to the children and produce to adults. Easy to do! If you have more people who would like to come, they can ride behind in a car. The van has only two seats since we need most of the room for food! When you sign up, someone will call to tell you all the details during the week before you do this run.
Sunday afternoon truck drivers
We need drivers who are experienced at handling trucks the size of a UPS truck. You don’t need a commercial drivers’ license, just some experience. Sign up with a friend to help you navigate (with our good directions) or we will furnish someone to ride along. Athletes will help unload the coolers. It’s great fun to talk with the kids!
Sunday afternoon van drivers
There is a separate route for the cargo van for the afternoon which goes to six sites with volunteers along. Although a commercial license is not required, this is an oversized vehicle which requires experience to handle. Good directions make it easy to do and the children make it fun!
Sunday afternoon riding along with the truck and van
Get a chance to meet the children and families we see each Sunday! Follow the truck or van to the sites and sit and enjoy getting to know the children. This is the most fun! Sign yourself up or bring a group!
