Get offline! Show your local love + volunteer at the Food Bank
Thursday, March 1, 2012 from 5:30 PM to 8:30 PM (PST)
Oakland, United States
** WE HAVE A FULL HOUSE! **
Wow! Thanks to the incredible outreach from Oaklandish, Tablehopper, and more, we are full! If you are part of a group from OneBrick, HandsOn Bay Area, or AmeriCorps Alums -- SF Bay Chapter, please use the contact link above to contact the event organizer.
If you're not from those groups, we would like to invite you to join us in the future.
Our greatest need for volunteers consistently occurs on weekdays during the mornings and early afternoons.
If you can organize a group of 5 or more to come in to the Food Bank from 8:30-11:30 am or 12:30-3:30 pm on a weekday pleasecontact email@example.com to let us know. Most shifts in March still have significant availability. Dates in April and beyond are virtually wide open. (Tell us you heard about it via Food Bank Love!)
Please provide (in order of preference) two time frames (date & am/pm) in which your group is interested and the approximate number that will be in your group. We will reply with more detailed information.
The Alameda County Community Food Bank serves 1 in 6 of our neighbors--from Berkeley to Fremont, Oakland to Livermore. In just 3 hours, you can help us sort and package food that adds up to thousands of meals.
Join us for an evening at the Food Bank! Meet new people and learn more about the work we do--and then get down to business, sorting fresh produce and food-drive donations that will go directly to families in need.
Space is limited. Each attendee must register. Refreshments will be served.
See you there!
