Second Harvest Heartland hosts monthly food basket distributions in each county in Minnesota to support families facing hardship due to the pandemic. We need committed volunteers to help distribute food boxes to 700 families. Distribution will begin at 10:30 am, and end at 12:30 pm, earlier if we give away all the food. We will need you to be there early - if everything is ready, we could start early. This event is rain or shine, so please dress for the elements including wearing sturdy closed-toed shoes (NO flip flops or sandals. You will be working in an area where traffic will be driving around, heavy boxes will be carried around, and pallet jacks will move boxes of food. We want everyone safe! We should not be able to see your toes. Thanks!)
This volunteer task is to help with the CFAP food distribution by loading boxes of food in each vehicle. Your work area will have pallets with three kinds of food: produce, protein, and dairy products. You will work in a team of 3 people to load the food into vehicles.
