About

Ride-Along Volunteer - Mobile Food Bank
As a volunteer with Chicken Soup Brigade's Mobile Food Bank, you get the best of both worlds-client interaction and food distribution. To start off the day, volunteers meet our staff driver and load the truck at our food production center in Georgetown. From there you're on your way to an apartment building where you take client’s grocery orders for the week. With order sheets in tow, you carefully assemble the grocery bags using the food in the CSB truck and bring it back to the client's door. Voila...easy!

About the Mobile Food Bank
The mobile food bank transports CSB’s healthy food directly to clients’ homes AND gives them the opportunity to choose part of their own groceries. By providing healthy foods to choose from, we are making healthy eating more doable for our clients.

A little about Lifelong's food program, Chicken Soup Brigade
Lifelong’s food program, Chicken Soup Brigade, improves the nutritional health of individuals living with chronic conditions and hunger. We recognize the importance of nutrition to overall health. It has the power to reduce symptoms of many illnesses. It can minimize medication side effects. And it can provide comfort when it is needed most.

Chicken Soup’s clients have specific health challenges, such as HIV, diabetes, kidney disease, cancers, or disabling arthritis. Most are living below the Federal Poverty Level, and all require assistance in managing their nutritional health. Chicken Soup offers a comprehensive food and nutrition program designed not only feed people but to nourish them.
