Another crew of volunteers meets on Tuesdays at 10 AM and makes up the rest. This is work that can be done by young and old alike, it's not heavy and you can see your progress.

Thursday and Tuesday volunteers half-fill food boxes (pre-boxing) so we can get a head start for "showtime" on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
Volunteers "ride shotgun" to help collect the food from grocery stores. It takes about 3 hours from 9:00 AM to noon. Monday through Saturday. Seated volunteers also check people in by computer on M-W-F.
Customers stay in their cars and we wear masks and wash hands. Most of these pictures were made pre-pandemic.
