Volunteers hand out groceries to about 300 people each week

About

Our food distribution program provides groceries to 200-300 individuals and families each week. We set up from around 7:30am-11am and do food distribution and cleanup from 11am to between 1 and 2pm every Thursday. No specific language skills required, but basic English, Spanish, Cantonese and/or Mam are especially helpful. Weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly commitment preferred. Arrival time for set-up is flexible, but volunteers who wish to help with the actual distribution should plan to arrive before 11 and stay until the end of the distribution (usually between 1 and 2pm). Volunteers who make a weekly commitment may also receive a free box of groceries at the end of the day.
