Would you like to help increase access to nutritious foods in your own community? If so, please join us for a Volunteer Orientation on National Hunger Awareness Day, Thursday, June 6th, 2019, 12-1:30pm at Family of Ellenville. The Orientation will include presentations by local food pantries, soup kitchens, community garden, and Farm to Food Pantry initiatives. 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; preparing summer meals for youth and lunchtime meals at a soup kitchen; picking up food from local grocery stores; stocking/organizing shelves and preparing food packages at your local food pantry; assisting with food drives and more. All Ellenville area Hunger Relief Programs are invited to attend and present at the orientation.
