Volunteers Needed at The Food Group in New Hope

Holy Nativity members and friends! Please see the below message from The Food Group that is being shared with all Wildfire churches! Thank you for your help!

In response to an unprecedented demand for food, The Food Group is now open for groups of up to 14 volunteers to serve the community.

Shifts are Monday through Friday, 9-11 am and 1-3 pm, along with a 4-6 pm shift on Tuesday and Thursdays.  The minimum volunteer age is 16.

Address is 8501 54th Ave N, New Hope, MN 55428.

Individuals can sign-up through the following website:  https://thefoodgroupmn.volunteerhub.com/events/index

If you would like to schedule a group of up to 14 volunteers please contact me at: djohnson@thefoodgroupmn.org.

As Minnesota is facing these challenging times, The Food Group has restructured itself to ensure our volunteers’ safety. We have pivoted the way we work to keep you safe by:

  • creating projects that keep volunteers six feet apart at all times
  • asking questions of each volunteer as they come in the door to make sure everyone has only been around those who are healthy
  • taking each volunteer’s temperature as they come in to ensure all who are volunteering are healthy
  • requiring all volunteers to wear masks throughout their shifts, masks are available for those without
  • sanitizing the areas before each volunteer shift.

The need for food has increased, we need volunteers now more than ever, and we need your help to feed people in need!

Just since the beginning of April volunteers have contributed over 2,700 hours; packing 575,000 pounds of food for our neighbors.  We need your help to continue to do so. Thank you!
