Our group will be inspecting and sorting donated food items in the warehouse. Second Harvest Food Bank works with its partner agencies to provide food assistance to people in our area who live at or below the poverty level. Over 42% of the people at risk of hunger in our area are children and seniors. In addition to providing food to homeless shelters and soup kitchens, Second Harvest directly serves children though several programs--the Backpack Program provides a backpack full of nutritious, ready to eat food that is sent home with children on weekends and holidays when school meals are not available, and the School-Based Mobile Pantry program conducts mobile pantries at various schools to provide food staples to families in need.
All volunteers must wear closed-toe shoes. Please let me know if you have any questions.
