TOPEKA - Senior Mobile Food Pantry


Registration for this event is not open for self-registration. Please contact the event organizer listed below for assistance with registration for this event.

  

Event Description:

Senior Mobile Food Pantries are a partnership between Harvesters and nonprofit organizations providing social services to seniors living in low to moderate income housing communities. Our mobile food pantry bus delivers fresh fruits, vegetables, dairy products and bread each Friday. We deliver to seniors that are homebound, living on small fixed incomes, and have limited access to grocery stores. This program helps them continue to lead healthy and independent lives.


Volunteers will help load the bus and then provide assistance to clients as they go through the mobile food pantry. This includes but is not limited to: assisting seniors with selecting items, helping carry the items to their vehicles and assisting clients with the check-in process. Volunteers must wear closed-toe shoes, dress appropriately for the weather, and be able to lift up to 25 pounds repeatedly.

 

Harvesters staff will provide training and support, including an on-site orientation on the day of the mobile food distribution. If you have a heart for service, a positive attitude and ability to be flexible this is a great opportunity for you!

If you are interested in this volunteer experience, please contact Harvesters Topeka Community Engagement at (785)-861-7750 or at fighthunger@harvesters.org.
