About Fresh Food Drive

94b49a43f6ea886659db70247f67a2d2f738dec3

Every Tuesday
3PM-6:30PM
Your efforts help coordinate fresh food donations for those in need.

Volunteer Duties:
- Pass Out "Fresh Food Drive" information cards
- Collect & Record Fresh Food Donations in the binder
- Gather donated food into provided bags for other volunteers to transport to recipient agency at end of market

The "Fresh Food Drive" is a part of our statewide Gleaning Network that aims to deliver Fresh, Healthy Food to those in need in our local area. We also aim to reduce food waste by preventing good food that is simply "ugly fruits and vegetables" from being thrown away when they are still good to eat.

This is a terrific opportunity to expose your family to Farmers Markets, food waste, hunger, & volunteerism. It is educational, fun, and helps make our state a better place.

Family-Friendly

Parents and children are invited and encouraged to get involved.
