KANSAS CITY - Mobile Food Pantry (Heaven Sent Charities)


  

Event Description:

48 percent of Harvesters agencies reported having no full-time staff.   They rely on volunteers like you to make sure that the community receives the food they need.

 

Mobile food pantries provide nutritious food in areas where access to food assistance is limited.  This program allows Harvesters to provide large quantities of fresh produce, and other nutritious food, where it is needed most.

 

Volunteers make it possible for pantries to distribute food.  This is an outside opportunity.  Tasks include:

     Assisting with traffic flow

     Managing sign-in sheets

     Loading food into cars

     Must be able to lift 5-20 pounds repetitively

     Assisting with cleanup
