NorthWest Initiative

  • 5 people are interested

Help us wrap and pass out bread to low income people! NorthWest Initiative (NWI) passes out bread every Thursday from 11-1. From 10-11 Volunteers will individually wrap the bread to pass out to our clients. If you like socializing with people, this is a perfect opportunity for you! Many of our clients are incredibly friendly and love talking with people. This is a simple way to help food insecure people in Lansing.

NWI is looking for regular volunteers to come help with bread distribution. Even if you can come only once a month, we would love to have you.

A short food safety training will need to occur prior to distribution.
