Join us for our next Saturday of Service for Second Harvest Heartland at their Brooklyn Park Facility! Volunteers will assist with sorting, labeling, weighing and packing various food items to meet immediate needs and help feed our hungry neighbors! The projects vary from day to day and volunteers regularly work with fresh produce, dry goods, bread, and various donations.
 
This volunteer opportunity requires volunteers are able to twist and bend down, stand for the duration of their shift, and lift up to 5 pounds. Some positions we may be asked to help with would require the ability to lift 40 pounds. Children ages 8 and up are able to help at Second Harvest. 

Please review their dress code information below:

  • Shirts MUST cover the shoulders, armpits, and bellies (no tank tops or crop tops) for food safety purposes.
  • Closed-toe shoes are required.
  • All clothing should be appropriate for handling food and not have loose, dangling beads or other articles which can be a physical contaminant.
  • Comfortable clothing that you don't mind getting dirty is preferred 
  • They suggest you dress in layers to remain comfortable while working as temperature can fluctuate.
  • No jewelry. When you are in the packing areas, you will be asked to remove all jewelry. Lockers are available on-site to store belongings.

Join us each month as we strive to SERVE those less fortunate in our community. Service opportunities will happen at Good Shepherd and throughout our local community. We are working to provide opportunities for people of all ages - but some locations will have age limits due to the nature of the service work. All those under 18 need to be accompanied by an adult for our service opportunities.
