Hours for food preparation and distribution are:

This is a great opportunity for someone who wants to see firsthand the impact their time spent serving makes to these families. The food boxes typically weigh about 100 pounds and are distributed to an eligible family once per month. We are proud to offer recurring spots or just once to anyone interested in serving with us. Organizations with volunteer teams of 6 work well in this spot.
