What:
  • Set-up: Get tables from the church shed and set them up in the parking lot. Help unload the truck. May involve some heavy lifting. Can then work as food distribution.
  • Food distribution: Staff a table or distribute food from a pallet. Restock your table when supplies run low. Should not involve heavy lifting.

If you can help: Please email me at greggmca@verizon.net or text me at 585-738-6141. Let me know what time you can volunteer and if you have any restrictions, such as lifting.


Since this is our first time hosting in almost two years, please try to recruit some additional folks to help. We don't know how busy we will be or exactly how FoodLink's new guidelines will impact our process.


We recommend that all volunteers wear masks during this program.


Thanks!
Gregg McAllister, for the E&M Committee
