Gemma's Angels is seeking volunteers to work as our Community Ambassadors at tabling events.
At various community events, fairs, festivals, etc., Gemma's Angels promotes the consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables for at-risk children and families.
We do this by providing a booth where we provide, depending on the event, an EZ-up tent, tables, chairs and hand out fresh vegetables and dip to attendees. We also can have a coloring station for children (pictures of fruits & vegetables), coloring books, book marks and other nutrition promotional items.
We also have Gemma's Angels Truck Farm Trailer which has a bed of various vegetable plants, herbs and spices for children to sample. There will be an educational component, promoting teaching sustainability.
We plan on having our two mascots, Farmer Andy and Farmer Andrea be in attendance at as many events as possible to promote the Five-a-Day and other healthy eating habits.
The length of the volunteer time depends on each event. Help is needed setting up and tear down at the events.
Note that most events occur in the late Spring, Summer and Fall. Some indoor events occur in the Winter. Parents and children can volunteer together!
We'll work with your schedule.
