Second Harvest volunteers gather surplus produce at the Minneapolis Farmers Market, as the market closes for the day. Early in the day, volunteers had out informational brochures to shoppers to encourage them to buy a little extra produce to donate and will accept those donations.
Shift is from 12:00 Noon to 3:00 PM
When the market closes, our volunteers will be collecting boxes full of produce from vendors, and hauling these boxes (using 2-wheeled carts) to locations where they will be loaded onto the Second Harvest truck. This role involves somewhat heavy physical work.
