July 7 — Food Bank Night

Featured

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 June we bagged over 9,000 lbs. of oranges and potatoes that were given to those-in-need the very next day – 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!

CRC Volunteers are urgently needed on Thursdays!

UUFSD volunteers needed this spring/summer at the Community Resource Center (CRC), 656 Second Street, Encinitas on Thursdays from 10am-12:30pm. Activities include helping CRC clients “shop” for food from the pantry shelves, unloading/sorting incoming donations of perishable, non-perishable foods and household items, and re-stocking pantry shelves. No need to make an ongoing commitment – we’re in need of occasional volunteers, especially during the summer months, to join our regular team of 3-5 UUFSD member volunteers.

To apply to volunteer or for more information, please visit our Sign Up Genius page at http://www.signupgenius.com/go/409054fa8a823ab9-volunteering or contact Susan Miller at susan3733@gmail.com. No experience necessary!
