All People’s Fresh Market Drive Thru Volunteers – 8/1/2020

August 1 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Prepare groceries for drive-thru shoppers on the South Side with Columbus Gives Back and Community Development for All People!

The All People’s Fresh Market will remain open during it’s scheduled times for those in need of fresh produce. We are going to be creating two “drive-thru’s” on each side of the building, as well as a walk up line. Community members will not enter the building. 

What: Volunteers are needed to take orders, go into the pantry and compile the food in a box, and then carry the box to the individual. The community member will then proceed to the check out table to be signed out before leaving. 

Where: All People’s Fresh Market, 945 Parsons Ave. Columbus, OH 43206. Volunteers can park across the street at 946 Parsons!

When: Saturday, August 1st (11am – 1pm)

Event Leaders: events@columbusgivesback.org

COVID-19 Precautions: All Columbus Gives Back volunteers are required to wear face masks and observe social distancing as appropriate to complete volunteer tasks. Volunteers who are sick, especially with fever or the growing number of Covid-19 symptoms, should stay home. We highly recommend that our volunteers wash their hands, use hand sanitizer at the beginning and end of the event, and/or wear gloves. We will follow whatever safety policy our nonprofit partners have in addition to the safety precautions listed above. Any volunteers determined to neglect these precautions and put other volunteers or the people we serve at risk will be dismissed from the event.

About All People’s Fresh Market: The Fresh Market serves 400-500 people daily and is one of the top 20 largest points of distribution for free food in the United States. Shopping limits are daily and we’re open 5 days a week.

About Columbus Gives BackWe love Columbus, young professionals, and getting involved! Our mission is to connect young professionals across central Ohio and engage them in our communities through 35-40 social volunteer and philanthropic opportunities per month.

#SocialTwist: Social Twists have been suspended until further notice, but typically we will also encourage volunteers to join us afterwards for food and drinks to better get to know the other cool folks in our group! Rather we encourage each of our volunteers to support local business during this time.
