We are seeking up to 50 volunteers to help distribute food at the Meals For Minds School Food Pantry Distribution on Thursday, May 30. The event will take place at Forest Home Elementary School, 1516 W. Forest Home Ave in Milwaukee. The volunteer shift is from 2:15 to 6:30 pm. Volunteers are needed for various tasks including but not limited to: bagging produce and other food items, assembling and dressing tables, prepping food cartons for distribution, breaking down cardboard, monitoring the food as it is distributed, restocking tables, bringing chilled cases from the truck and clean up.
Meals for Minds is an innovative program created by Target with the goal of feeding undernourished children so they can perform well in school. Since 2001, Target has awarded Feeding America programs nationwide with grant money in order to make this event possible. Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin is organizing monthly distributions from September through May at Forest Home Elementary School. During each distribution, each child enrolled at the school receives 22 lbs. of food. 25 percent of that total consists of fresh produce.
If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Tyler Younger at 414-831-6310 or email@example.com.
