Event description

Description

The Fresh Truck is an innovative collaboration between the Greater Chicago Food Depository, Cook County Health and Hospital Systems (CCHHS). Participating clinics utilize a 2 question food insecurity screening during patient intake, and if patients screen positive for food insecurity they receive information about the location of emergency food resources, information about how to apply for SNAP (food stamps), and a prescription to visit the Fresh Truck. Volunteer jobs include checking in the clients receiving food, assisting clients with their food selections (i.e., how many items from each category they can take), and helping clients with their bags down the stairs as they exit the Fresh Truck.

All volunteers need to register in order to volunteer. Registration Link: https://volunteers.chicagosfoodbank.org/index.php?section=indGpRegistrations&action=profile_conditional&fwID=13193

This is an outdoor distribution. Please plan accordingly in regards to weather and mild physical activity.
