TOPEKA - October Sort & Repack


Event Description:

COVID-19 Safety Measures: 

Volunteers must be 18 years or older and all volunteers must wear a mask. Social distancing practices will be implemented to keep volunteers a safe distance from each other. 

Volunteers will also be asked to sign a waiver stating they have not traveled outside of Kansas or Missouri in the last 14 days and they are not currently ill. If they have traveled or are currently showing any signs of illness, they will be asked to leave the facility and not return before 14 days have passed.


The Volunteer Engagement Center (VEC) is a vital part of Harvesters’ mission to feed hungry people today and work to end hunger tomorrow.  In this area, volunteers sort and repack food, which assists Harvesters in feeding more than 141,500 people each month.  Volunteer tasks are assigned based on product availability and project prioritization. 

Opportunities include:

  • Sorting fresh produce
  • Sorting and boxing bread
  • Packing BackSnack
  • Packing Senior Commodity Food Boxes
