The holidays are a popular time for reflecting on what we're thankful for and giving back to the community—so here's an opportunity to help with a food bank that provides much needed food for many individuals/families throughout Orange County.
The holidays are also a busy time of year, so sign-ups will start about 1 week prior. Space is limited, so to avoid no-shows & late cancellations, please only sign up if sincere about helping. Thank you.
Volunteers are needed for planting, weeding, or harvesting.
"Depending on the season, you’ll be planting seeds or smaller plants, picking weeds, or harvesting broccoli, carrots, onions, strawberries, cabbage, chili peppers, green beans, watermelons and pumpkins"
This is at an outdoor "garden" environment, so please:
Dress casual/comfortably. Expect to get dirty.
No open-toe shoes (no sandals or flip flops).
Leave personal belongings (e.g. purse) in your car.
Second Harvest recommends wearing sturdy shoes, long pants, and lightweight, long-sleeved shirts. They also recommend bringing water, gloves/hat, sunscreen lotion, sunglasses, etc...
Children are welcome to help (adult/parent/guardian supervision required). Please bring this waiver.
