What to Wear and Expect

  • Closed-toed shoes are required
  • Please do not bring purses or backpacks as storage is limited and they are not allowed in our project areas.
  • We recommend not bringing any valuable items with you as we are not responsible for any lost or stolen items.
  • The activities for the event are announced on the morning of the event as they are dependent on what donations we receive. Generally, volunteers help to sort and package fresh produce, non-perishable food, or food drive items. These projects are moderately physical. Volunteers may be involved in moving moderate to heavy items.
  • The temperature in the distribution center is like the temperature outside. We recommend wearing comfortable clothing accordingly.

Donations

Monetary donations of any size are greatly appreciated! Just $1 can help provide the equivalent of 3 meals. Click HERE if you would like to donate.

If you would like to bring your own food donations to your volunteer event, our current, most-needed shelf-stable items are:

  • peanut butter
  • canned meat
  • canned fruit
  • cereal (hot or cold)
