Produce & Bread Market Volunteers

Description

We hold these distributions to reduce the inventory of perishable product in our warehouse. We have been lucky to receive larger quantities of this product however it needs to be distributed quickly. This is where we need your help. Volunteers are needed to set up the food distribution area, distribute food, "shop" with recipients to select products, help recipients carry product to their cars, and clean up after distribution is complete. This volunteer project requires volunteers to lift, bend and stand during distribution preparation and throughout the distribution period. A sensitivity of working with vulnerable clients and respect for all is requested. Our ultimate goal is to create an environment where people are comfortable enough to accept help.

All volunteers are asked to arrive at 3:30 pm. The distributions will wrap up around 6:30 pm. 

All Market distributions are held on Mondays & Wednesdays at our facility located at 2405 N. Shore Dr., Urbana, IL 61802. 

Please be sure you have filled out our volunteer registration form before attending any volunteer opportunity. Sign up to volunteer here: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0844afac28a0fd0-produce
