Marketplace in Newark (Community FoodBank of New Jersey)
Serve the hungry from a mobile pantry by providing the many people who are unable to reach a community foodbank with this invaluable service.
Be a part of this unforgettable experience!
Volunteers are needed to assist with the following tasks:
Set up and take down of the operation.
Help the food bank driver and two Mobile Pantry Managers by unloading tables from the food bank truck.
Set up the tables and pallets of food onto the tables. This includes cases of canned food from the Federal government; fresh produce, bread, juices and other food items suitable for families in need.
Make up two bags of food per family, help manage the food distribution, break down the cardboard boxes, and gather any leftover items for our driver to load back into the truck.
Volunteers should be able to stand, lift boxes and move about during the distribution.
