Food Sort in San Carlos

Let's spend a Saturday morning together sorting food for Second Harvest Food Bank! These projects are hands-on and a great way to get to know other volunteers in our group. We will inspect and categorize donated food products (such as dry goods and produce) and bag, box, or repack to ready for distribution. Training is provided at the beginning of each shift. Afterwards, we can gather somewhere for a simple lunch! Hope to see you there!

    Hello SFPride Parade for the LGBT And Allies community is this weekend. They need Contingent Monitors who help make sure the groups parading are covered. Kind of like a den mother helping make the best experience possible for paraders and viewers. There is a training session in Mt View if you are interested. Ping me if you are interested. P S My apologies if this is not the proper channel for communication however time us of the essence.

    It was a good meetup and great people. I can still see expiration dates under cans in my mind though

    Wear closed-toe shoes and long pants. We are dealing with heavy cans of food. Dropping one on your foot is dangerous! It happened on Wednesday to some poor guy. He yelped pretty loud.

    NO SHORTS or TANK TOPS!

    Please consider bringing in canned foods to donate! Cans high in protein in high demand! They love tuna and peanut butter.

    There is a volunteer agreement to fill out. You can find it in our Files on the meetup site. To find our files, click on the "More" tab besides the "Discussions" tab. The waiver form is called Second Harvest Volunteer Agreement. Please fill that out and bring it to the project. I am sure they will have blank ones there. Also in the files tab is a "Map of Volunteering Location - Bing Center, San Carlos".

    Thanks! Feel free to contact me via text or call[masked]-6916. I don't own a smartphone, so if you update your status or leave me a message on the site, I won't get it immediately.

    Here is the email I sent out:

    Hi everyone!

    Looking forward to tomorrow! I was just here on Wednesday night sorting food with my company and it's tons of fun!

    THERE ARE SPOTS AVAILABLE! If you are on the WAITLIST, please MANUALLY add yourself to the event by changing your RSVP to YES. If you RSVPd YES and are unable to attend, please UPDATE your RSVP.

    Please plan on arriving ten minutes early. They will not let you in after 9:15! From past experiences, there are a lot of volunteers from various organizations, so it will be nice to gather up our group so we can stick together. Please allow enough drive time to San Carlos!

    Hi everyone! Please update your RSVPs if you are unable to make it. Also, if you are on the waitlist, you can manually update your RSVP to "YES" if a spot becomes available. Please plan on arriving at least ten minutes early. It is a big project with people from different groups. I will be holding a sign up until we start the project, so come look for me!

    I have something else in the afternoon, so I am thinking of opting out. If nobody fills up my spot, I will rejoin.
