Volunteers Needed to Assist with Mobile Food Pantries

Virginia Peninsula Foodbank is in need of volunteers to assist with their Mobile Food Pantries. Mobile Food Pantries are a way to distribute much needed nutritious food to members of our community who need it the most, children, seniors, veterans, and hardworking individuals. The volunteer(s) meet the Foodbank’s representative at the designated apartment complex/site at the predetermined time. Volunteers are asked to help unload the food from the Foodbank truck and assist with setting up a distribution center inside or outside the designated space. The Distribution could take place inside a community room or outside in a parking lot. If there are frozen items, volunteers will pack them at this time. Once the set-up is complete, the distribution will begin. Some of the residents may need assistance getting their packages to their front door or to their cars.

This need varies from site to site. The food distributions occur:

– each 2nd Monday – Hampton from 11am – 2pm

– each 2nd Tuesday – Newport News from 8:45 am – 1230pm

– each 3rd Monday – Hampton from 8:45 am – 1130am

– each 3rd Friday – Newport News from 10:15 am – 12noon

After the distribution is complete, there is some clean up that we ask the volunteers to help with. Some standing and lifting is required. These events occur rain or shine.

Once an interest is show, the address of the site will be provided. If you have any questions, you can email Maria Quigley, Volunteer Coordinator,  or call the Foodbank at 757.596.7188. Thank you for sharing your time and talent in support of hunger relief.
