Mobile Pantry Food Distribution

8am at Distribution Site (Locations change, but will be announced in bulletin/enews in the weeks prior to event.)


~2NDSAT (OneGenAway events always start at 8am, unlike all the other 2NDSAT Events) We work at an outside Mobile pantry, first in helping set up for the event by separating and bagging the various food donations from the pallets unloaded from the 18 wheelers.  Once this is done we then work either at one of the stations distributing the food or volunteers help recipients push grocery carts through the line and pick up each bagged variety of food while going down the line of tables. The volunteer "cart pushers" then assist the recipient to their car to unload the groceries. The recipients usually end up with about one to two weeks worth of groceries. Recipients must only need food to qualify.  We will also break down boxes for recycling.

OneGenAway raises money to purchase groceries in massive amounts at discounted rates. . When all the food is finished being bagged, volunteers are stationed at different tables. Some
