ORGANIZATION: ProduceGood

Market Share Volunteers and their harvest!

ProduceGood's food-recovery program, Market Share, combines the fun of farmers markets with volunteering and picking up fresh, healthy produce to feed a wide-variety of San Diego's food insecure. These people include children, seniors, veterans, low and no-income individuals, people in recovery, and those who often struggle to meet their basic nutritional needs.

You will be helping us divert food from landfills to feed those in need by picking up the fresh produce from vendors at the La Jolla Open Aire Market which volunteers drive and deliver to our receiving agency.

Soon we will be operating our Market Share program at the La Jolla Open Aire Market (on Girard Ave.) every Sunday from 11:30am - 2:00pm,. We are looking for individuals to help us in a one-time capacity, or in an on-going volunteer position.

If you are interested in helping us drive and deliver the harvest to our receiving agency please contact producegood.shannon@gmail.com for more information.

REQUIREMENTS:
-If under 18 years old, please be accompanied by parent, guardian, or chaperone for the duration of the event.
-Ability to lift up to 35 pounds at a time.
-Passion for creating equitable food systems and creating a healthier environment!

If you enjoy farmers markets and want to spend your afternoon rescuing food for people in need, we would love to hear from you. Email producegood.shannon@gmail.com to learn more.
