FOOD: Food Sorting
More Than Apples, inc
More Than Apples helps rescue food destined for the landfill to fight food insecurity in North County families. At their weekly food distribution, volunteers sort and divide large amounts of food into individual boxes available to families for a small donation. Volunteer tasks will include helping load 2 large trucks, sorting through all produce to identify any spoiled product, unloading all cold product indoors, and dividing all the food up into the amount of boxes we distribute (about 170 each week). Before COVID-19 hit, MTA served about 75 families weekly, now the size of their operation has doubled. They need more hands to get food into the homes that need it. Project Requirements & Important Notes Attire: Closed-toe shoes and face masks are required. Wear clothes that can get dirty and sun protection (sunscreen/hat). Bring: Resusable water bottle Physical Requirements: Must be able to bend and lift up to 50 pounds. The most help with heavy lifting is needed during the 12pm-2pm shift. Can NOT be sick or have been around anyone sick in the last 7 days. Note: Volunteers are not allowed to take photos at this project. Please let the Volunteer Leader know if you have experience using a pallet jack.

We are looking for people with a heart of service that can lift 50+ pounds, be at least 18, and not have been around anyone sick within the last 5 days. We operate from 10am-10pm, but mostly need people from 1-6. We would be so blessed by 10 Volunteers on a weekly recurring basis. Thank you!
