Would you like to help increase access to nutritious foods in your own communities? If so, please join us for a Volunteer Orientation. You’ll learn about the many opportunities to help support and grow local initiatives to address food insecurity and improve the quality of food available to those in need in our community. Volunteer opportunities include: helping to grow, glean and distribute fresh produce donated by local farms; delivering meals to homebound individuals; preparing lunchtime meals at a soup kitchen and evening meals at an after-school program; picking up food from local grocery stores; stocking/organizing shelves and preparing food packages at your local food pantry; assisting with food drives, holiday meals, and more. The Orientation will include presentations by Family of Woodstock Inc, Angel Food East, People’s Place Food Pantry, and the Farm to Food Pantry Collaborative.
