Description

Encourage your neighbors to donate food for our community! Each year, we partner with our friends at NBC Bay Area and Safeway for the Feed The Need holiday food drive. Volunteers are stationed in a Safeway store encouraging shoppers to purchase a bag of items for donation to a local food bank. Your group may also be featured live on NBC Bay Area!

What's Needed To Complete

Nothing is required, but many groups make signs and/or post on social media to help promote.

Special Requirements

All ages are welcome at these opportunities! We have found youth to be the best fit for this drive.  Please plan to have 2-6 people at each shift.

How It Makes A Difference

The San Francisco - Marin Food Bank will be able to build more complete non-perishable meals for our neighbors in need. This will save us valuable funds to purchase other types of food as well.

Where to Serve

In-Person/On Site

Instructions

Arrive at the store during your selected time. Find a Safeway staff person to get set up. Encourage shoppers to buy a bag of groceries!  Report back to Cody who volunteered: mailto:cjang@sfmfoodbank.orgcjang@sfmfoodbank.org. Be sure to let Cody know that you found this volunteer opportunity through Create the Change® ® ® ®! .
