Gemma's Angels is seeking volunteers to work at our tabling events.
At various community events, fairs, festivals, etc., Gemma's Angels promotes the consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables for at-risk children.
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 to attendees. We also can have a coloring station for children (pictures of fruits & vegetables), fresh herbs for children to taste and smell, coloring books, book marks and other promotional items.
New this year will be the Gemma's Angels Truck Farm Trailer which will have a bed of various vegetable plants, herbs and spices for children to sample. There will be an educational component teaching sustainability.
We plan on having our new character, Farmer Andy, be in attendance at as many events as possible promoting the Five-a-Day and other healthy eating habits.
The length of the volunteer time depends on each event. Help is needed setting up the tent, tables, chairs and laying out the literature and setting up the fresh produce and other promotional information.
Note that most events occur in the late Spring, Summer and Fall.
