About

Arm In Arm's partner organization, Yes We CAN is seeking a food drive site coordinator to coordinate and oversee food drives at the Pennington Farmers Market. Drives will take place from 9am-1pm on four Saturdays during the summer (June-September).

The site coordinator will be the primary liaison with the market manager and will be responsible for scheduling drives at the market; communicating with volunteers; setting up tables, collection bins, etc. the morning of each food drive; and arranging the donation pick up with Arm In Arm. The site coordinator will also be responsible for using collected monetary donations to purchase additional produce from farmers at the market for Arm In Arm's pantries.

Yes We CAN is a group of volunteers who seek to alleviate hunger in our area by holding food drives at local grocery stores and markets to benefit Arm In Arm's food pantries. Since 2008, they have collected approximately 300,000 pounds of fresh produce and nonperishable food for Arm In Arm.
