Napa Valley CanDo

CanDo's FOOD RESCUE TEAM

 

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Changes due to COVID-19.

  • The temporary location for the the Napa Farmers Market, throughout the month of June, is the City of Napa parking lot located at 1100 West Street in downtown Napa. This is the old Cinedome location, overlooking the Oxbow Commons. The market will be open from 8:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. 
  • The Farmers Market is following direction from Napa County Public Health and will provide updates via social media and email if the situation changes. You can also get updates directly at the Napa Farmers Market Website: 
    https://napafarmersmarket.org/
  • The Farmers Market team has put stringent measures in place to keep everyone safe. When you arrive, tell the staff at the FM Information Table that you're volunteering with Napa Valley CanDo. Meet the other volunteers at the main FM Information Table.
  • Please wear a mask and closed-toe shoes.
  • Except for an hour difference in time (see below), the routine hasn't changed. We'll practice social distancing, of course, and provide hand sanitizer and gloves. 

NAPA VALLEY CanDo's FOOD RESCUE TEAM

WHAT WE DO

Every Saturday year-round, Napa Valley CanDo volunteers collect extra produce from our generous Farmers Market vendors for distribution to our local Food Bank and to a local Chef who prepares meals for the South Napa Homeless Shelter.

HOW IT WORKS

11:15 Meet up at the Farmers Market near the FM information table. Look for the volunteers wearing bright yellow safety vests with the CanDo logo on the back. 

11:30 Distribute bins to participating vendors.

11:50ish Collect full bins and load them in our cars. One vounteer takes some of the food directly to La Toque Restaurant, where Chef Ken Frank will meet you and receive it. He uses this to prepare delicious meals for the clients at the South Napa Shelter. La Toque is just a few minutes drive from the market. Use our scale to weigh the donations that go to Chef Ken, and record on the clipboard (no need to weigh the food that goes to the Food Bank, as they weigh it there.)

12:15ish Other volunteers drive the rest of the full bins to the Food Bank warehouse, where Rick Nichols meets us, unloads and weighs it all. By 12:45 or so, you're done and on your way home!

WHAT YOU NEED

During the summer, bring a resuable water bottle and a hat.

Please wear shoes with closed toes.
