Volunteer for Mid-Ohio Foodbank Kroger Food Pantry – 8/28/19

August 28, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Columbus Gives Back invites you to join us and the Mid-Ohio Foodbank at their Kroger Community Pantry! We will be greeting families and assisting them as they shop on the pantry floor (food selections, pushing carts, bagging groceries), organizing and maintaining stocked shelves, and keeping the space clean, welcoming, and dignified. Volunteers will occasionally be lifting up to 50 pounds and will be on their feet for this whole shift.

Where: 3960 Brookham Drive, Grove City, OH 43123. Parking is free and on-site. Enter through the food pantry doors on the east side of the building (closest to I-71). Check in at the food pantry office to sign-in.

When: Wednesday, August 28th from 5:00pm – 8:30pm

Event Leader(s): Diana@columbusgivesback.org and Jamaal@columbusgivesback.org

What to Wear: Attire should be something casual, comfortable and that can get dirty. Since warehouse climate can be tricky, layers are recommended. For safety purposes, we cannot allow volunteers to wear open toed shoes, sandals, or loose jewelry/clothing.

Individuals and families with household incomes less than 200% of the Federal Poverty Level are eligible to receive food from the pantry.
