Food Box Delivery for Common Ground HS Families

Organization

Common Ground High School/New Haven Ecology Project

Description

Volunteers are needed on Wednesdays at Common Ground!! Each week we delivery food boxes to CG families who have expressed food insecurity. We've had some turnover in our Family Food Box drivers as folx get called back to work. This is a great opportunity to get involved and directly support our community.
Driving is a one hour commitment from 1:30 - 2:30 on Wednesdays. We set our drivers up with addresses and everything they need to know. Volunteers simply have to drive and feel good knowing you are non-contact delivering nourishing food to our community.
DRIVING SHIFTS OPEN STARTING AUGUST 19TH
Wednesdays 1:30pm - 2:30pm

We also have an opportunity opening up for people to help pack the bags that are delivered to folks. It's a 2-hour window that happens earlier in the morning, and you would be part of a team of people assembling bread and other produce into bags (like corn, fruit, cheese, or cereal) for our families.

BAG PACKING STARTING AUGUST 19TH
Wednesdays 9:30am - 11:30am
Please, spread the word!!
