Food Bank Volunteer (Hazel Hurst Community Center)
Jefferson Parish Community Action Programs (JeffCAP)
Our Community Center distributes donated foods to feed the needy households with items from Second Harvest Food Bank twice a month (each 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month) between the hours of 8:30am to 4pm. We are looking for individuals to assist with:
- Unloading small trucks of food from Second Harvest Food Bank.
- Preparing food boxes
- Assisting clients with boxes to their vehicles, if possible.
- Assisting with the check-in process, as well.
Unfortunately, we have no weekend opportunities available, just Monday - Friday.
If interested, please let us know and you will be contacted via email/phone with further information.
