Chesterfield Food Bank needs our help! Come serve others in our community! They serve 6,000 meals to 1,200 people every week!!
Help is needed on the 2nd Friday of each month.
Every week is different! Sometimes there is quite a bit to prepare beginning at 4:00, other weeks there is less to do! The key is to be FLEXIBLE! We are there to help however we are asked! There is definitely a break of time after prep before distribution (sometimes up to an hour - but we will not know that ahead of time). Any help is appreciated, so please consider serving from 4:00 - 5:15 (or until prep is finished) or come around 5:15 pm to hear directions and help with distribution. YOU ARE WELCOME TO SIGN UP FOR BOTH SLOTS or decide last minute that you want to stay.
PLEASE JUST COUNT PEOPLE OVER 16 IN YOUR COUNT, but mention children in comment section!
How you may be asked to help!
- Divide up large donations of food into "client sized portions"
- Distribute portions into shopping carts for clients
- Escort the shopping cart to client's car
- Help assist with crafts at the children's table
- Visit with and/or distribute drinks to the clients as they are waiting
- Wear comfortable, weather appropriate clothing. No flip flops or heels.
- Anyone under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
