FROM CES FOODSHELF:
We are continuing to provide food to our neighbors in need. For the protection of our neighbors, volunteers and staff we have made some changes to the process to ensure we are following the necessary Coronavirus precautions. Due to these changes we have a need for additional healthy volunteers who are not at high risk for severe illness to COVID-19. Our volunteer opportunities are:
We have divided up the work into 3 shifts:
- Bag and Box Packers: 10-Noon
- Bag and Box Packers + Set-up: 10-1pm (able to lift 30 lbs)
- Distributors: 1pm-4pm
Dress accordingly as the distribution will occur outside in the CES parking lot. Click on Join the Cause to sign up for available shifts. Additional information will be provided once you have sign-up for a shift, and there is some information on cesmn.org.
CES delivers food to people who can’t get to the food shelf because of health issues. We start out at CES, 1900 11th Avenue S. and “top” a bag of non-perishables with fresh produce, load the bags in the van and then travel to the delivery site. Volunteers then deliver the groceries to clients’ apartments. We have changed how we are delivering to accommodate COVID1-19 restrictions. Click on
