Community Service Event: Mid-Ohio Foodbank

April 26, 2017
3:15 PM to 5:30 PM
 Add to Calendar

Mid-Ohio Foodbank
3960 Brookham Drive
Grove City, OH 43123

This is the second of two dates the SMPS Spring Volunteer Event will be held at the Mid-Ohio Foodbank. This unique volunteer experience will provide you an opportunity to assist with the Kroger Food Pantry as a food pantry assistant. In this role, you will:

  • Assist families that are shopping on the pantry floor by explaining how to use pantry selection charts, and by answering questions regarding service.
  • Help organize and maintain stocked shelves from the available pantry inventory.
  • Visit with families, assist them in making food selections, push shopping carts and help bag groceries.

It was brought to our attention from our first volunteering experience earlier this month, that there's a great need for personal hygiene items and baby items (diapers, wipes, food, etc.).

Physical requirements include being able to occasionally lift up to 50 pounds and being on your feet for up to 2-3 hours at a time.  Attire should be something casual, comfortable and that can get dirty. Since warehouse climate can be tricky, layers are recommended, and please do not wear any open-toed shoes for safety purposes.

After volunteering, the group will come back together at the Grove City Brewery to celebrate and reflect on their experience.

In the spirit of the food bank, please bring $10 worth of food items to the event as your registration fee.



Please note: Spots are limited for this event. Due to limited availability, please notify Rachel Macedonia if you are registered, but unable to attend so we can fill your spot with another member.

Two dates for this event are available—April 5 and April 26.
