Drivers are needed to deliver food to families in need in the city of Rochester and surrounding suburbs. The South Wedge Food Program delivers about 2000 boxes of food to low-income households each month. This allows people without safe transportation, people who are immunocompromised, and people who are disabled to get the nutrition they need without having to leave their homes. If you have a working vehicle, and can lift a box of food weighing about 40lbs, then we have an opportunity for you! Drivers usually take 4 or 5 addresses within the same zip code. You can deliver one run (less than one hour's commitment) and head home, or you can come back to load your car and deliver to another neighborhood (making the shift about three hours long). Deliveries are rarely more than ten miles from the pantry (68 Ashland st) and are done between 9am and noon on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays. You may choose areas of the city you are comfortable in. Everyone practices social distancing and wears a mask and we ask that you put the box on the client's doorstep and back up ten feet to reduce the spread of germs. You'll need your cell phone in case you can't find a client's address. Gas is not reimbursed.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
About South Wedge Food Program
68 Ashland st, Rochester, NY 14620, US
The South Wedge Food Program exists to offer free groceries to people in need in Rochester, NY. We provide food with respect and dignity and help clients find other sources of help in and around the Rochester area.
Since the 1970's the Historic Calvary St Andrews building has hosted a feeding program for those in need. Currently, we feed between 300 and 400 families each month; providing them with healthy food choices. We are set up just like a grocery store to help reduce the stigma of needing to visit a food pantry. Our volunteers are friendly, helpful, and enjoy each other's company. We also have a sewing program that makes reusable shopping bags for our clients.
