Food Packaging - help refugees

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: PROJECT WORTHMORE

Join Project Worthmore to make a difference in the community! Our Food Packaging shifts are a hands-on way to get involved in your community while helping others. Not only do we repurpose fresh fruits and veggies that would otherwise be wasted, we also address food insecurity in the Denver area and support over 140 refugee families in need each week. Spending just 1-2 hours to unload, sort, and package bags of fresh vegetables and fruit allows us to distribute over a thousand pounds of culturally-relevant food weekly to help families as they settle in Denver as their new home. We follow the most up-to-date COVID protocols. Email marlene@projectworthmore.org to volunteer.
