Drivers needed to help deliver food for Baltimore Hunger Project!
Baltimore Hunger Project is dedicated to eliminating the growing problem of weekend childhood hunger by feeding bodies and minds. They are bridging the gap between Friday and Monday by consistently providing weekend food packages to children identified as food insecure, in a compassionate and dignified manner. They raise awareness about the effects of hunger by establishing partnerships with community members, other organizations, and decision makers.
Each volunteer driver will be paired with a specific school for a weekly food drop off. This involves picking up food from the Baltimore Hunger Project and delivering it to one of 20 schools. The hours and days are flexible. Volunteers will communicate with schools to make sure they are aware of drop off timing.
*This volunteer role can be a shared between multiple people. As long as the assigned shift and school drop off is covered, volunteers can alternate who fulfills this role.
Commitment: Volunteers are asked to commit to one day a week during the school year (September through May).
Restrictions: Volunteers must have a valid drivers license and be able to lift potentially heavy items.
