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 behind Media Methodist Church (350 W. State Street in Media).
Duties: Purchase $100 worth of produce by case from Produce Junction (Broomall or Boothwyn) i.e., romaine lettuce or another type of lettuce, lemons, apples, tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, etc. and other seasonal produce. NO Root produce (onions, carrots, etc. as they are being delivered by another organization.) Deliver produce to Media Food Bank.
When: Every Thursday between 9:00 am to 11:00 am or between 5:00 and 5:30 pm.
Reimbursement: MCP will reimburse you out of the Deacons fund up to $100. You can donate more produce over $100 if you like. Or if you are under $100, i.e., you have $10 left and not enough to purchase a case, they will sell you 1/2 a case. Get a reimbursment form from the church office, attach the receipt, then drop it in the mailbox outside the church office. Address it to Jack Schoen in the office and he will cut you a check.
Contact Deacon Jill Lardon (610-990-9637) or [email protected] for info about volunteering. Jill would be glad to accompany you on your first delivery and show you what to do.
Other Opportunities for Media Food Bank: 2nd and 4th Saturday of each month volunteers are needed to help hand out food, clothing, etc to those in need. Contact Holly Goffney 610-761-2814
