November  – December 2017, Inspecting and Repacking Meals with Rise Against Hunger.  Monday – Thursday, 9:00 am – 3:00 pm

Rise Against Hunger Atlanta
Volunteers are needed to inspect and potentially repacked meals made during large-scale meal packing sessions. Occasionally, seals are not made properly and if there any gaps in a food bag, essential nutrients can become compromised and not provide the needed benefits to the child at school.  It is very important that the bags are inspected for proper seals and packed according to the Rise Against Hunger standards.  Shifts can be between one to three hours Monday through Thursday 9:00 am – 3:00 pm. Afternoons and weekend are by appointment only.
There is plenty of parking in front of Suite 1022.  Please wear a hat, closed-toed shoes, and comfortable clothing. It does get hot in the warehouse, so t-shirts and shorts are suggested.
This project does require lifting of 30+ lbs boxes, so volunteers should be comfortable with this task. To schedule a shift, please contact Chelsea Wood at cwood@stophungernow.org.

Volunteers will come together to inspect, sort, and pack quality grocery donations to prepare for distribution to over 600 different agencies across Georgia.  This project is for ages 8 and up only.

Please use this dedicated link to sign up with the Pebble Tossers group. All attending adults register at the following link: http://vhub.at/4Q0WPW.

NOTE: If you are registering someone under 18 years old, please indicate them as a guest and follow the prompt. We must have 1 adult for every 4 children (8-12 years) and 1 adult for every 8 youth (13-18).

If you have children between ages 8-17, download this form to print and bring with you: https://acfb.volunteerhub.com/go/u/521

Parking: Upon arrival into the main entrance (look for the big high sign with our orange peach logo), the parking lot will be to your left (on slight hill). After exiting your vehicle, look left for the fence covered walkway (affectionately known as “the cage”) with the Product Rescue Center Volunteers sign. Follow the fenced walkway to the PRC door.

Dress Code: Closed-toe and closed-heel shoes are required, with sneakers or work boots recommended. Flips flops, sandals or heeled shoes are not allowed. Please wear comfortable clothing you do not mind getting a bit rumpled.

Food Donations: With 1 in every 5 Georgians and 1 in 4 Georgia children at risk of hunger, the number of people requesting emergency food assistance continues to grow. If every volunteer visiting our Product Rescue Center brings just two cans of food, they would be able to provide approximately 2,750 additional meals each month!

Please consider bringing as many nonperishable items as you can. You’re already making a tremendous difference by volunteering. Think how much that can be magnified by grabbing a couple of food items to bring with you when you come!
