The Jackson Street Food Bank will be opening its doors to our neighbors in need on Wednesday, March 25 from 5:00 until 7:00 p.m.
Due to the precautions encouraged to limit the spread of the COVID-19, we will be implementing some new procedures. These new procedures will be somewhat more labor intensive for our volunteers. You will have protection to keep you safe from contact with potential illness but we will need more than the usual number of volunteers. We really appreciate all the volunteers that have helped the last few months.
What do Volunteers do? 1) 9:00am to 11 am, morning set up, (moving tables and chairs) , receiving our food delivery, and preparing bags of staple foods (canned and dry) to be ready for hand out later 2) 3pm to 7 pm , afternoon final set up and distribution (volunteers will have limited contact with clients and will do the selection of food items), and/or 3) 6pm to 7:30pm Help is especially needed with clean up and return the room to standard set up (put the food back into the closets and reset the tables and chairs). Volunteer help is welcome at any or all of these times. (We ask that children not participate in this season.)
