Event description

Description

Eat & Be Well is a one-day event celebrating the Thanksgiving season by supporting the underserved community of San Bernardino County.

Thanksgiving is an opportunity for family and friends to come together, share a meal, and express gratitude for all they have. Eat and Be Well allows us to do the same as a community and to go one step further: ensuring that citizens in need have access to essential opportunities and resources.

Eat and Be Well provides services for those challenged by unemployment, health issues, and other related concerns. We help individuals and families alike.

Volunteers serve, 15 hundred to 22 hundred hot meals per year. Excess perishables from this event will be donated to local recovery homes, churches, soup kitchens, and missions the next day on Thanksgiving.

With collaborations between public agencies, businesses, volunteer groups, and the people of our community, Eat & Be Well provides those in need with a traditional Thanksgiving meal and health resources.

Frequently Asked Questions:

What do I do when I arrive at the event?

Upon your arrival, please look for our volunteer check-in booth, which will be located at the East end of the park. At the booth, you will be assigned a job, and then a team captain will clearly explain your responsibilities.


What is the minimum age to volunteer?

You must be at least 14 years of age accompanied by an adult chaperone to volunteer at Eat & Be Well. There are no exceptions to this rule.


Do I need to have a Food Handler card to serve food?
