Mariner's Harbor Mobile Market Food Distribution!

City Harvest Logo

City Harvest is in high need of volunteers at our Wednesday, July 3rd Mariner's Harbor Mobile Market. Help distribute fresh produce, free of charge, in an open-air market setting to hundreds of families of need! Volunteers will be stationed at 3-4 market tables, each supplied with thousands of pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables that they will help distribute to eligible market-goers. As the market-goers stop by each table, volunteers greet them and then weigh and bag the produce.

The Mobile Markets take place outdoors, rain or shine. We stress that it's important to wear comfortable, weather appropriate clothes. As this is a very hands-on activity and there is no secure place to leave your property, it is recommended that you travel light, i.e., personal belongings should be left at home/office or a messenger bag/backpack should be used.

First time volunteers will not need to attend an orientation for this special, high need project! Volunteers must be 18 years or older and must register on City Harvest's Volunteer Portal.
