Group Volunteer Opportunity at Three Square Food Bank!

Hi Ladies! Three Square is Southern Nevada's only food bank providing food assistance to the residents of Lincoln, Nye, Esmeralda and Clark Counties.

 

Three Square's mission is to provide wholesome food to hungry people, while passionately pursuing a hunger-free community. They combine food banking (warehousing canned and boxed goods), food rescue (obtaining surplus or unused meats, bread, dairy and produce from hospitality and grocery outlets), and ready-to-eat meals to be the most complete food solution for Southern Nevada.

 

They work with more then 600 Program partners - which includes non-profit and faith-based organizations, schools, and after school and summer feeding sites - in our community to reach struggling individuals and families at risk of hunger. In 2012, they distributed more than  24.5 million pounds of food, the equivalent of 18.8 million meals through their Program Partners.

 

Many have joined their fight to end hunger, including the gaming industry, local businesses, non-profit agencies, food distributors, higher education institutions, the Clark County School District, government entities, the media, and thousands of volunteers and donors.

 

For whoever is interested, let us volunteer as a group. Last time we sorted and packed product that was distributed through their Agency partners, soup kitchens, food pantries and homeless shelters. Hopefully there will be time for a brief tour of the facility as well for those who have not been there before.

 

The shift will end before one of our favorite times of day, lunch! This time we will select a venue ahead of time (ha ha, no getting lost like last time!) , so please join us for lunch if you are available.

 

We'll discuss carpooling and dress code as the time gets closer.

 

This volunteer shift may also serve as an excellent opportunity for new ladies to meet members of our group in a public setting. It is a group requirement that all new members must attend a public event before being allowed to attend a private house party. This is for everyone's security.

    I looked back for an update on dress code, but I don't see it here. I will wear capris, and hope that is appropriate.
