The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Help us distribute food to youth! We are in need of a volunteers to drive the Mobile Tastiness Machine, our version of a food truck, into two low-income neighborhoods to distribute food to youth on Mondays and Wednesdays.
The Mobile Tastiness Machine (MTM) serves hot, healthy meals prepared by our culinary staff to youth in 4 low-resource neighborhoods. Meals are often paired with nutrition education and physical activities to engage the children in a learning experience.
Volunteers should wear closed toe shoes and bring water to stay hydrated. We do screen every volunteer through the national sex offenders registry, since this volunteer opportunity works with youth/minors. Let us know if you have any questions.
