Volunteer drivers and volunteers are needed for our new All-Kids Farmer's Market and the Mobile Farmer's Market based for Harrisburg City Schools on Thursday beginning this Fall.
We're seeking volunteers with a deep commitment to increasing the consumption of fresh fruit and vegetables for at-risk children.
The All-Kids program will visit backpack and similar school-age food programs, provide students an opportunity to choose their own produce to take home and to provide an educational component.
Volunteers and drivers are needed for both programs.
Older middle school children with parents may participate in the program but must be supervised at all times. School-age children will come on board the mobile market, be given a choice of produce and provided a small educational lesson in that particular piece of produce i.e. oranges have vitamin C, etc.
The Mobile Farmer's Market program provides regular stops to deliver free fresh produce at soup kitchens, homeless shelters and food banks in Dauphin and Lebanon Counties.
This is a unique program unlike any other in the region or the Northeast US to our knowledge. Hop on board for the volunteer opportunity of a lifetime!
Child background checks are provided free of charge to all volunteers. For driver's, the minimum age is 25 and requires a clean driver's record. For THIS program, volunteers MAY have to undergo a full FBI fingerprint and background check. We will reimburse the full costs of these checks.
Please remember, on our volunteer registration form, to provide your entire address AND phone number. Thanks!
