SHARE


Food Distribution - Food Distribution

Volunteer Project Description:

Thousands of families count on SHARE each month for affordable, nutritious groceries that are sold through volunteer-run locations throughout the Washington metropolitan area.

Join us on a Friday or Saturday to assist with the distribution of food. Volunteers will assist senior citizens, load vehicles with food packages, make sure people get the correct amount of food items, and greet individuals and community groups who come to SHARE to pick up their food packages. Some heavy lifting may be required. This is a great service opportunity for families, teens, and groups of volunteers! Join us for an experience that is fun and rewarding while making a difference in your community. 

Please note that volunteers may leave early, if needed, but all volunteers should arrive at 11 AM on Fridays and 5:30 AM on Saturdays.

Volunteers under 16 years of age must be accompanied by an adult. This activity is not appropriate for individual volunteers under 10 years of age or large groups of volunteers under 16 years of age.

The SHARE Food Network is located at 3222 Hubbard Road, Landover, MD 20785.
