Food Bank - Package Food for the Homeless

Back by popular demand. Join us as a volunteer at the Orange County Food Bank. Help others while you get a workout. What can be better than this? This organization distributes 15 million pounds of food annually. In addition to the 23,000 people that the Food Bank serves directly each month, it provides food and personal care items to over 300 non-profit service organizations, such as social service agencies, churches, shelters, soup kitchens and senior centers. These organizations serve the homeless, disabled persons, seniors on fixed incomes, the unemployed, and the working poor. We will be merely prepping and packaging food from 6 P.M. until 8 P.M. Please arrive early at 5:45 P.M. for a 15 minute instructional session. Kids under parental supervision are welcome. If attending, I suggest that you dress-to-not-impress as this will require light physical activity. Finally, note that space will be limited for this event, so be respectful and ensure your RSVP is accurate and current. See link below to learn more about this organization and their mission:

    Greetings! I called the Foodbank to see if I could fit you all in for this event. Unfortunately, they wouldn't allow it. However, we will post this event very soon as it seems to be very popular.
