Sept. 1 — Food Bank Volunteer Night

Join Us! Just 20 minutes from UUFSD. It’s always from 6:00 – 8:00 PM – anyone over 7 years old can help! Mostly we just put food in boxes on an assembly line or bag fresh produce – really easy, no lifting, no bending, great camaraderie. In August we bagged 3,700 lbs of nectarines which were handed out the next day at the Summer Fun Cafe. This SD Schools program provides a little extra food to take home after the free school lunches given to our kids-in-need. – in JUST 2 HOURS!

This is a wonderful way of helping locally those in need and strengthening our UUFSD community as well. The San Diego Food Bank distributes over 20 million pounds of food annually to individuals, families and a network of nonprofit organizations that work to alleviate hunger throughout San Diego county. They need our help!

For more information and to Register you MUST contact Sara Ohara for the special UUFSD Group code: sara@saraohara.com
