Rescue Food, Saturday mornings
Rescue Food is food donated to us by a retail company because due to USDA guidelines and dates printed on a product, they are not allowed to sell the product nor have it on their shelves any longer, but it is still usable and safe to consume. We need help stocking and sorting the rescue food each Saturday morning at our Farmington Food Shelf. You do not need to fill out our Volunteer Interest Form for this opportunity.
Please click on the following link to be taken to a third party site called Sign Up Genius for more details and to sign up. These are one time or ongoing opportunities, depending on your availability and how many times you sign up.https://www.signupgenius.com/go/60b0944abae23a5ff2-target3
