Public Schools Pantry Volunteer Team

Public Schools Pantry Food Bag Packing & Delivery, Sep-Dec 2019

To help pack, load, or deliver Public Schools Pantry food bags to 18 public preschools & elementary, middle, & high schools across Berkeley between 10a & 2p on 2nd & 4th Fridays, or to help us with set-up or clean-up, please sign up below to join our (very friendly!) team. Please note that you do not have to be available to help out the entire time -- just let us know what times work for you & we'll be excited to have your help.

We are now packing in & distributing from a new location: our Berkeley Food Network warehouse at 1925 9th Street just off University. There is ample street parking, but no parking available in the lot at this location (it's used by our neighbor, Meals on Wheels). 

RE: SCHOOL HOLIDAYS Note that in December, we will be packing & delivering bags on the 2nd & 3rd Fridays of the month.

RE: LOADING BAGS FOR DELIVERY To load bags into your car, back into one half of the Berkeley Food Network loading dock driveway on 9th Street just before University. Bag-packing volunteers will help load your car via the loading dock. These bags can be pretty heavy with produce, beans, rice, a couple of cans, etc. If you have a wagon, it often helps to bring it along to make quick work of the delivery at the school site (some school sites have carts on hand).

If your family is in need of a food bag delivered to your student's school, you will find all the information about where the bags can be found at your school & how to get connected or just pick one up at https://berkeleyfoodnetwork.org/school/

Location: Berkeley Food Network warehouse
1925 9th St, Berkeley, CA 94710
