Volunteers are needed to help with monthly distributions at Second Harvest Food Bank's Family Harvest sites. Family Harvest provides food and educational programs to low-income families with minor children. This is a hands-on volunteer activity and does require some lifting and regular movement. Activities could include assisting with room set up, unloading and moving food inside a community room, bagging fresh produce, distributing food to clients, and clean up. This is a great chance for volunteers to interface with our clients.

Note: this is a good job for individuals or groups who can do heavy lifting
