San Luis Obispo : SLO Food Bank

leader: Caroline Johnson
date: March 18, 2017
time: 9am-12pm

The Food Bank Coalition of San Luis Obispo County coordinates 70 direct food distributions a month and works with a network of over 200 agency partners to provide nutritious food to insecure and low income individuals and families. The Food Bank relies on volunteers to sort and distribute food every day to those in need and therefore play a key role in ensuring that people in need have access to nutritious food. 

Volunteers who work in the warehouse will need to: 

- Fill out a volunteer application found here: Click Here
*You can print it off and bring it with you the day of the event. This is in addition to the waiver we ask you to sign on the Love SLO website. 

- Wear closed toed shoes

- Dress warm and comfortably, as the warehouse is a setting with variable temperature. 

Warehouse volunteer tasks may include: 

- Bagging fresh produce and shelf-stable (dry and canned) food

- Sorting non-perishable food donations

- Sorting food from grocery store donations. 

When you sign up for the project above you get a free Love SLO t-shirt. The shirt is available to be picked up at any time from J. Carroll (113 Cross St, San Luis Obispo, CA 93401 / 595-1000). Go into the main lobby, tell them you signed up for Love SLO, and they'll give you your shirt. Easy as that! Otherwise we'll have your shirt at the Mission Plaza the morning of the event.

Love SLO (March 18th) begins at 8:00am in the Mission Plaza. Festivities (free food, fun, etc.) begin at 8:00am and the Rally will begin around 8:45am. You will meet here before going to your project location.

When you arrive, you'll want to find your project sign and meet your project leader. After the Rally, you will meet at your project sign and hear important instructions from your project leader before going to your project location.
