Pack and Load Food Packages - Shift III

Support Brighter Bites with packing of fresh produce and loading of delivery vans and personal vehicles for distribution to families in Elmhurst, Woodside, Jackson Heights and other parts of Queens which have been hit very hard by the pandemic and has resulted in severe food insecurity within the community. Volunteers should be able to lift approximately 30 pounds and be prepared to be outside for the majority of the project on their feet.
