Recruiting Organization: Greater Chicago Food Depository

The FRESH Truck is an innovative collaboration between the Greater Chicago Food Depository and health organizations throughout Cook County. Patients, who attend the FRESH Truck, are referred by their physicians based upon the results of a food insecurity screening. Volunteer jobs at the FRESH Truck include staffing the check-in and health/nutrition table, being a personal shopper and restocker. Because of volunteer support, thousands of patients and their families have access to fresh produce. These opportunities are available in 21 different locations.
