The Redwood Empire Food Bank delivers food to two middle schools (Lawrence Jones and Technology Middle) on Wednesday mornings. Ricky Schumann, Student Services Specialist is looking for volunteers from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. to put boxes of food into the cars of families who are also coming to pick up school lunches. There are weeks when the produce and other items become loose and must be bagged before distribution.
Each school also has someone who greets the families to gather their name, number in family and zip code (no lifting required). Four people are needed per school. They are only looking for volunteers; there is no monetary contribution being sought. All volunteers must wear masks and gloves. Everyone is outside and the people receiving the food will stay in their cars. Volunteers work within a couple of feet of each other. Exposure to Covid-19 in minimal, but could potentially come from someone who does not know they have contracted the disease.
