Help With Weekly Food Pantry In Woodlawn Community, Flexible Shift Time

The Woodlawn Community Food Pantry is fully operated by volunteer members of the Chicago Alumni Chapter, Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity with support from the The Greater Chicago Food Depository. They have been operating for over a year as an outdoor mobile and is now a full service indoor/outdoor pantry with more food items. The pantry distribution takes place every Monday at the Edward G. Irvin Achievement Center in one of the most under-served neighborhoods in out city. Volunteers will help put cans and boxed food in shopping bags and pack fresh produce and frozen meat and distribute them to pantry clients. This is a hybrid outdoor in the summer and indoor (in their huge basketball stadium) when weather is too cold. Event Date: Every Monday afternoon Event Time: 2 pm to 6:15 pm Location: Edward G. Irvin Achievement Center 500 E. 67th Street, Chicago, IL 60638 Google map: [hidden] Shift time is flexbile, you can come and leave as it fits your schedule Time line: 2 pm to 4 pm: pack grocery bags 4 pm to 6 pm, public distribution to clients 6 pm to 6:15 pm, clean up, recycle boxes, put unused food away.
