Wednesday Food Bank Shopping

Every Wednesday morning, we go to Second Harvest Food Bank to pick up fresh produce, bread and bottled water. This is a vital step in securing supplies for our Sunday distributions.

Details include:

  • Meet at Second Harvest Food Bank at 8:45am. The Food Bank is located at: 3655 Reed Street, WSNC 27107
  • Park in the parking lot and head up the ramp or stairs to the reception area to meet our Operations Manager, Bob Russell, and any other volunteers from HOPE
  • Shopping begins at 9:00am; produce is selected first, then we decide on getting bread and/or bottled water
  • After selecting all items, we load our Cargo Van and head back to our operations facility to unload all items. Our Operations Facility is located at: 505 Deacon Boulevard, WSNC 27105
  • We are usually finished around 10:15am
  • You will need your own vehicle to drive to the Food Bank and to our Operations Facility
  • We often pick up over 1,000 pounds of food items, so there can be some heavy lifting (up to 50 lbs. at a time) involved

Due to the nature of this opportunity and requirements set forth by Second Harvest Food Bank, we ask that all volunteers are at least 18 years old.
