PATH Valley Vista Weekly Food Distribution

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: PATH (People Assisting the Homeless)

Provide food for those in need and reduce food waste from local businesses by volunteering at PATH Valley Vista's food distribution. PATH Valley Vista is one of PATH's supportive housing sites.

Volunteers will bring out food donations, sorting them by category and disposing of any low quality/expired items. Volunteers will then monitor/support clients as they pick up their items. This can vary from helping a physically disabled individual carry their groceries to identifying what items are available. After the distribution, volunteers will help break down by cleaning the food distribution space (i.e. Wiping down used surfaces, throwing out trash, sweep, etc).
