Delaware’s People In Need Calls For Volunteers

PIN2016 Produce Market Volunteer

Produce Market Basics:

Produce Markets are designed to provide fresh food to individuals and families in need. The Mid-Ohio Food Bank supplies all of the produce distributed at the Market and most of what is offered is fruits and vegetables but may also include bread and dairy items. Each Market can serve up to 300 families and eligibility is set at 200% of the Federal Poverty Level. After each event is completed, any remaining produce is distributed to PIN food pantry clients and other MOFB Partner Agencies as needed.

In addition to PIN staff, each Market event needs approximately 10-15 volunteers to assist with this important project.

Dates:

The 2016 events are scheduled on the last Wednesday of the month, March through November.

Location:

PIN facility at 138 Johnson Drive, Delaware.

Distribution Times:

2:30 to 4:30 PM

Volunteer Basics:

Recruited volunteers should arrive at least 30 minutes prior the market start time. We are asking for volunteers to show up between 1:30 and 2:00 PM and stay until the Market is closed at 4:30 PM.

Parking at the PIN facility is limited. Volunteers are to park in the Office City Parking lot across the street from PIN. Carpooling is strongly encouraged.

The Markets are outside events and are held rain or shine, hot or cold; so please come prepared!

Volunteer jobs include: market set up, client sign in, assist clients to collect produce and move through the line, traffic control, and, clean up

How do I sign up? to volunteer call Randy Bournique at (740) 363-6284 or

send an e-mail to rbournique@delawarepeopleinneed.org
