Your responsibilities will include picking up a Nissan Transit van in Encinitas that will be set up with the market supplies. Then you'll meet the market volunteer crew in La Jolla with the supplies. You can walk around and enjoy the market while the volunteers collect excess produce from market vendors. Once they're done, they will fill up your van and then you'll head to one of our Feeding Partners close by to deliver the bounty.

  • Possess a valid driver's license
