On May 12, 2018, Second Harvest Heartland will be partnering with the National Association of Letter Carriers and Cub Foods to orchestrate the nation's largest, single-day food drive: Stamp Out Hunger.
Volunteer to be a part of this exciting day
We need your support in this monumental, collaborative effort. This is a great family event! Youth, age 8+, accompanied by an adult, are welcome to join the fun!
We have multiple sites across the metro where we need your support! (Available sites are listed at the registration link).
Site Leader, 12:30pm – 6:30pm:
Responsible for meeting the truck at the Cub Foods location, connecting with the manager of the store, and directing the support volunteers when they arrive. For the first few hours it will be just the lead and the driver unloading the postal trucks that come through. The position is very active and physical demanding, you will be moving in and out of the truck as well as assisting in setting up the totes and pallets in the truck. More details will be available once you sign up.
Support volunteer, 3:00pm – 6:30pm:
Postal vehicles will arrive at designated location, the support volunteers then swiftly unload the collected food from the postal vehicle and load it into the semi-truck. This is a physically demanding job with lots of bending and twisting while lifting grocery bags of food. While the food isn’t heavy, it is a consistent and repetitious movement. We also ask for your flexibility as we are not able to predict the schedule of the postal vehicles, so there may be down time between arrivals.
