KANSAS CITY - Mobile Food Pantry (Serve the World)


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
