Sponsored by Deacons of MPC - Media, PA
We are looking for volunteers (you do not have to be a Deacon) to support Media Food Bank, located behind First United Methodist Church of Media (350 W. State Street, Media).
Duties: Purchase a case of produce worth $125 from Produce Junction (Broomall or Boothwyn). Produce can include such items as: Romaine lettuce or another type of lettuce, lemons, apples, tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, etc. and other seasonal produce. (Please, NO root vegetables such as onions, carrots, beets, etc. as they are being delivered by another organization.) After your purchase, deliver produce to Media Food Bank.
When: Any day (including Sundays) between 2:00 and 4:00 and Thursdays between 9:00 and 5:00.
Reimbursement: MPC will reimburse you up to $125; however, you may donate more produce over $125 if you like. If your purchase is less than $125, Produce Junction will sell you a 1/2 case in order to increase your purchase to $125. Reimbursment forms are available in the church office. Please fill out the form, attach the receipt, and either drop it in the mailbox outside the church office (attn: Jack Schoen) or drop it off during office hours.
Contact: Deacon Jill Lardon (610-990-9637) or [email protected] for more info about volunteering. She would be glad to accompany you on your first delivery to show you the ropes.
Other Opportunities at Media Food Bank: On the 2nd and 4th Saturday of each month, volunteers are needed to help hand out food, clothing, etc to those in need. Contact Holly Gaffney 610-761-2814
