Feeding America San Diego helps feed more than 16,000 children, families and seniors in our local community every week! Come join your fellow District 5340 Rotarians for a fun-filled morning and hands-on service project as we volunteer at the Feeding America warehouse. Spouses, friends and children 6+ years old are welcome and we'd love to have them join in on the fun! We'll spend our morning shift in their Distribution Center doing a number of different projects and depending on what's needed may include:
  • Filling bags with fresh produce to be later delivered to children in need
  • Sorting food that has been pulled from grocery store shelves to prevent it from reaching the landfill and instead into the hands of families in need
  • Repacking bulk product received by Feeding America at a discount
Feeding America is always accepting food donations and feel free to bring any donations that your and your club would like to donate. Also, please note that since we'll be volunteering in their Distribution Center, closed toe shoes are required. Cost: $9.99 per person and includes lunch (pizza, salad & beverages) immediately following the end of our shift at 11am. Sign up today on the District Website!
