The Second Harvest Food Bank is looking for a dozen good citizens to volunteer in its “Mobile Fresh” food distribution system two days a month for two hours at each site.
Nicole Segura is the Mobile Fresh coordinator who is hoping to find volunteers with a passion to make a difference for those in the community who need more food to fill their pantries and keep them away from hunger’s door.
The volunteers will be asked to bag food stuffs and be involved in the distributing a wide variety of vegetables to those who show up at the one hour sessions with their bags held open wide. There are all comers from families with children to the older, retired men and women who are living on a seriously fixed income.
The next event in Manteca is scheduled for Friday, April 8, at Sequoia Heights Baptist Church at the corner of Wawona Avenue and Union Road from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m. Volunteers are asked to arrive at 8:15 a.m.
Volunteers must be at least 18 and children are not allowed on site while a person is volunteering. The workers must be able to lift up to 20 pounds using proper lifting techniques and follow Food Bank staff instructions being patient, respectful and cheerful. Cell phone use and smoking on the site will be prohibited. Anyone under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol will not be allowed to volunteer.
Those wishing to sign up are urged to call Kristen Salas at 239.2091.
