Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Morning of Service
Monday, January 21, 2013 from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM (PST)
Oakland, United States
In the spirit of Dr. King’s commitment to community service, the Food Bank will again be hosting a morning of volunteer service and learning.
Participants will volunteer to sort and box food in our warehouse and learn more about efforts to address the issue of hunger in our community. All participants are asked to be at least 10 years of age with youth needing to be accompanied by one adult volunteer for every five youth.
“…everybody can be great. Because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve…You don’t have to know about Plato and Aristotle to serve. You don’t have to know Einstein’s Theory of Relativity to serve…You only need a heart full of grace and a soul generated by love.”
- Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
We hope you will be able to join us for this special day of service and celebration.
