Each week at the Over60 Health center, volunteers and AmeriCorps gather fresh, local produce and bread donations to give away to the community of South Berkeley and North Oakland. We are looking for a volunteer with a car to help in the pickup of veggie donations from the Moraga and Walnut Creek Farmer’s Markets on Sundays. This would entail a pickup of plastic crates from the Over60 Health center in the week prior to the Sunday pickup, then a 3-4 hour commitment of time on Sunday to drive to the markets and aid in the pickup of produce.
