Opportunity Details

Fairfield Warehouse: Earth Day 2024

Celebrate globally by serving our community locally! Please join the Food Bank on Sunday, April 21, 2024, for our Earth Day Family Food Sort. Individuals, Groups and Families with children as young as five years old are invited to learn about our green initiatives and “Volunteer to Improve the Environment'' by bagging fresh produce at our warehouse for our food distribution programs.
The concept of “being green” has evolved over the years. The Food Bank takes pride in our use of solar energy and the fact that we recycle papers, glass and plastics, and have an organics bin. As you might imagine, we also have a special interest in preventing food waste.  When we divert food from going into the landfill, our hungry neighbors and our environment all benefit. 
This unique opportunity allows groups/families to bring children as young as five years old to volunteer at the Food Bank.  Scheduling is first come, first served.
Important information to read before you sign up:

  • All volunteers must be scheduled.  
  • One actively volunteering adult for every 8 children between the ages of 5-15 volunteering is required.
  • When you Express Interest in participating in Earth Day you will be required to tell us how many children and how many adults are in your group.  
  • After submitting your Express Interest request, please wait for an official confirmation from us. You will be notified if there is space for your group, or if the shift is full & you have been placed on the Waiting List.
