Boobs4Food SF Apr2010: Round 3 @ SF Food Bank
Did you know April is National Volunteer Month?
In San Francisco, 150,000 people struggle each day to feed themselves and their families. Hunger manifests itself as a consistent lack of enough food to meet nutritional requirements. It can mean fewer meals each day and poor-quality food that is calorie-rich but nutrient-poor.
How can you help fight hunger in SF?
Join Boobs4Food SF as we return to the San Francisco Food Bank on Saturday April 24, 2010 from 12:30-3:30pm for Round 3 of some more hairnet action.
Duties in the past have included sorting fresh produce, packing frozen green beans & pasta, and assembling food boxes. Adults & Kids ages 8+ are welcome to participate, just be sure to state how many you’re bringing. This is a great way to get some of your volunteer hours logged before the end of the school year.
Date: Saturday, April 24, 2010 1230-330pm
Location: SF FOOD BANK – 900 Pennsylvania Ave at 23rd Street, San Francisco, CA

ATTIRE: It’s important to dress in layers, as the temperature in the warehouse is often cool.

Anyone wearing sandals, flip-flops, or any other shoe with an open toe will not be able to participate in the project.
You’re welcome to utilize the parking lot as agencies do not shop at this time. Additional street parking is free and abundant.
WHERE TO REPORT: We ask all volunteers to sign in upon arrival.
Please report to the south side of the building, entering through the central pedestrian door. Signs will direct you to the volunteer break room.
OUR VOLUNTEER DEPARTMENT STAFF: George Gracia, Robert Alvarez, Jeremy San Juan, Andy Breunig, Will Carpenter, and Nick Eitz, the Project Leaders, will be training your group and managing the food sorting projects.
