The Food Rescue for TOUCH NJ is one of Aqua Corps's recurring volunteer opportunities.  Each week on Saturday morning, volunteers pick up a large food donation from ACME in Willingboro, NJ.  The volunteers split the food items up between cars or trucks and transport them to The TOUCH NJ Food Bank in Camden, NJ.  The food donation can range from 400 to 1,000 pounds each week. A car can typically fit 10-12 boxes. SUV's or Trucks can fit even more.

The volunteers carry the food donations inside.  The TOUCH NJ Food Bank is located in the basement of the church.  You can enter at the red door on the far right side of the building; through the small fence. The volunteers weigh the food items that they bring in for donation purposes; and then they place the food items on the appropriate shelves/refrigerators.  Once the volunteers are finished, the TOUCH NJ food bank is stocked and ready to feed vulnerable individuals and families for the week!

Each week different volunteers assist with this food rescue.  If you would like to be put on the rotation to volunteer, please RSVP and let us know your e-mail address, cell phone number, and what type of vehicle you have.  We will then put you on the schedule for a Saturday that works for you.  We share the schedule via e-mail and Google Documents.

IMPORTANT CHANGE: All volunteers will meet at the Willingboro ACME at 9:00 AM.  Volunteers have come previously at different times and aren't able to connect with one another.  Every pick-up will begin promptly at the ACME at 9:00 AM.  If you are only able to come at a later time, please go right to the TOUCH NJ Food Bank in Camden to help with the unloading.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
