Riverbend Food Bank reports the demand for food is even greater during the pandemic than before, as much as 30% higher. We have reserved Saturday September 19th at 10 am for food distribution sponsored by the Riverbend Mobile Food Pantry.
Because of COVID it will be different and we will not be using red wagons or shopping carts. The food for distribution will be prepackaged and we will distribute food from the Mobile Food Pantry truck directly into vehicles.
We need about 5 people to direct traffic, and 10-15 to place boxes into cars. All volunteers will need to wear a mask and be able to lift 20 pounds. We expect between 120-150 cars. There is going to be a lot of car traffic so we suggest this is not a good activity for preteens. Volunteers sign up by clicking the button below.
You can support this ongoing mission by volunteering and/or by donating to Riverbend Mobile Food Pantry through the church.
