OVERLAND PARK - Mobile Food Pantry (New Haven SDA Church)


  

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.  There are two different opportunities.  All volunteers must be able to lift 5-20 pounds repetitively.

 

Tasks for 8am-Noon shift include:

     Set-up food and supplies

     Assisting with traffic flow

     Managing sign-in sheets

  

Tasks for 9:30am-12:30pm shift include:

     Loading food into cars

     Assisting with cleanup

You will be asked to agree to COVID-19 public health requirements and a waiver by the ReNewed Hope Food Pantry team.
