Group Volunteering at Second Harvest - "Beat the Heat!" Shift

This isn't your usual sorting shift... this is a "Beat the Heat and Sort the Meat!" shift!  We are going to be sorting meats in the cooler on this shift, so please wear closed-toed shoes and clothes appropriate for a working in a refrigerator (jeans, warm work gloves, sweatshirt and/or jacket, head band or cap).  We'll be bending, stooping and possibly lifting up to 35 pounds.

Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee’s mission is to feed hungry people and solve hunger issues in our community. This is not possible without the help of countless volunteers that work each year who help get food ready to go out to the community.

Second Harvest needs volunteers to help sort donated food for Middle Tennessee families who need a hand! Volunteers sort non-perishable and perishable food into categories for distribution to not-for-profit agencies in Middle Tennessee. Food sorting is done at Second Harvest Food Bank’s Martin Distribution Center in Nashville in our warehouse. With your help, we are fighting hunger and feeding hope in our community.

Waiver and emergency contact forms will need to be signed by each person who has not volunteered at Second Harvest within the last year. Those forms will be available at Second Harvest when you arrive.

Directions to Second Harvest: from downtown Nashville, take I-65 N to Rosa Parks Blvd and head west towards Metro Center.  Turn Right on Vantage Way and at the 4-way stop, turn left onto Great Circle Road.  Second Harvest Food Bank is on the right hand side of the road at 331 Great Circle Road.

Volunteer parking is at the front part of the lot, closest to the front doors of the building. When you arrive, please sign in and we'll get everyone set with job assignments.

    Can anyone who is coming tonight bring an extra pair of gloves that I could borrow? I thought I had a pair that would work but can't find them. I'd appreciate it!!!

    You know I'd be there if I could, making boxes, since I can't handle the cold room. However, I'm in China. Sorry to miss it.
