After a glorious Easter weekend, we settle back in to the everyday routine. The Table will be jumping tomorrow. It’s the fifth Tuesday in the month and school is off. We have a lot of volunteers on vacation, and we have a lot of bagging to do: spring break bags for children and fresh greens from Produce Source, along with donations from Bonefish Grill, Food Lion, and our regular Jimmy John’s, Panera, Chipotle and Wawa.
We are back to normal hours this week: 9:30 to 11 a.m. and 5 to 6:30 p.m. We can use help early in the kitchen (after 7 a.m.), again at 11 a.m. to restock for the evening session, bagging help in the kitchen at 4 p.m., and then clean up at 6:30. We are also seeking people who are willing to glean from our regular donors on a regular basis (late morning pickups) and even on an emergency basis. We get calls from local stores and restaurants with extra food that needs to be picked up in a relatively short time frame. The Food Bank is going to a new computer system in May, and we will be training our computer people on it. Georgine can use more people at the front desk on the computers and greeting. We need a few more to learn how to sign up people for SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program).
Please let us know if you are interested in helping in any of these areas! Thank you!
