We are looking for 15 volunteers to assist on getting food and other products ready for distribution to Second Harvest’s partner agencies- food pantries, shelters, meal sites, etc. Our tasks may include sorting, labeling, packaging food to family-friendly portions and cleaning the work area following the projects. This volunteer opportunity will assist the Second Harvest Food bank's goal in ending hunger in southwestern Wisconsin and give WAND members the chance to network and work on team building skills. 

Please be aware there is limited parking. Carpooling is encouraged. There are spaces in the lot and also on the far side of the street in front of the building. Avoid a parking ticket from the city by not parking on the side of the street closest to the warehouse. *Note: Bus Route 39 does not run after 5:57 PM.

Schedule:

  • 3:45-4:00 pm - Arrive at Second Harvest in the warehouse through the glass door marked "Enter". Sign in on the volunteer group sheet located at the Reception desk. Give your Photo Release Forms (available upon registration) to the receptionist.
  • 4:00-7:00 pm - A Second Harvest staff member will meet our WAND group and guide us through our project. 

Please notice:

  • Closed-toe shoes and shirts with sleeves are a must! 
  • Food and drink should not be consumed in the warehouse though the break room is available for our use. 
  • No tobacco is permitted in the warehouse.
  • Please do not bring purses, bags, backpacks, valuables, etc. as there is no secure place to store them.
