Site Details: In the Greater Cleveland region, one in seven people experiences food insecurity - meaning they may not know where their next meal is coming from - and the Food Bank connects individuals with nutritious meals to close the hunger gap. At their Healthy Choice Food Market, community members can select their own food items in a grocery store-like setting.

Service Details: Volunteers are needed to assist with loading vehicles with food, organizing and consoildating products, cleaning as needed, and assisting community members with shopping and food selection. Please note: closed-toe/closed-heel shoes (no sandals, clogs, or flip flops) are required. The project may also include lifting boxes up to 35 pounds and standing on your feet for the duration of the service.

When + Where: Registered volunteers will meet at the CCEL office (TVUC #165) at 4:30 p.m. and return to campus by 8:00 p.m. Transportation is provided to the site in a CCEL van driven by a CCEL Student Leader.
