Fresh Food Rescue

Several Ways You Can Help

Do you have time to volunteer one or more times a month on Monday or Thursday mornings between 8:45 a.m. and 11:00 a.m.?   

FFCC is involved in several food rescue projects and deliveries to neighborhood food distributions. They happen every week on Monday and Thursday mornings. Most tasks do not take more than 1.5 hours of time and volunteer drivers are asked to provide their own vehicle as the delivery mode. Also, our partners at the Backyard Produce Project could use more volunteers for picking fruit trees in our neighbors' backyards. To find out more contact Becky at ffccsdlocal@gmail.com

 
OPPORTUNITIES TO GET INVOLVED

            Door of Hope Easter Egg Hunt             Sat, April 13th, Volunteers & Donations Needed

FFCC in partnership with the Salvation Army's Door of Hope, a women;s transitional home, is hosting the first annual Easter Egg Hunt for the resident children. FFCC needs 18 volunteers  from 8:30 AM - 1:30 PM to help with the egg hunts for three age groups, assist with egg dying, face painting, mask making, and a photo op with the Easter Bunny.

Items that could be donated include trinkets for plastic eggs, blown-out white chicken eggs (for dying), and gift cards for the teen's treasure hunt.  There are twenty children 5 and under, twenty children 6-10 years old, and 20 children 11-18 years in age. The blown-out eggs are great for dying but we need a lot to make it fun for all--6 per child x 60 children = 360 eggs!

Please contact Gail Matson to volunteer. If you have eggs, or other items to donate, she will come pick them up or you can drop them off at her home in Poway. 858-486-8969 or matsonsouth@cox.net.
