Since 2015 Northwest United Methodist Church has partnered with Daniel Wright Elementary School in a "Brown Bag Lunches" program (1/2 students receive free/reduced school meals). The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated food insecurity. On 5/22/2021 USDA will deliver 1300 food boxes (30 lbs each).
Volunteers will help to unload the boxes off delivery trucks and load onto recipients' cars. We will also need drivers to deliver the food boxes to others' homes. We recommend volunteers wear sturdy shoes and clothing you can move in easily. Food boxes are about 30 lbs each.
