You're invited to volunteer at Out of the Garden Project, a local non profit that distributes meal rations to our community! Everyone is welcome so bring a friend! We will be working a warehouse consolidating food into boxes and moving those boxes around so please wear comfortable shoes and clothing.
Let's meet at the parking lot behind the Weatherspoon Art Museum at 5:30. If you can offer your car and driving services, we can carpool to the warehouse which is located:
300 N Carolina 68, Greensboro, NC 27409 (behind the C3 church)
Their warehouse opens at 6:00 pm.
"Of Guilford County Schools’ 73,000 students, 56% (over 40,000) receive free or reduced price lunches and breakfasts.
This is one of the highest rates in the nation. Studies have shown that when students do not eat on the weekend, it can take up to Wednesday of the next week after students have eaten for two days at school to begin to learn at the same rate as their peers who had access to nutrition during the weekend.
There are also other issues that arise when hunger is present. Ultimately, our goal is to find a way to help feed children and families in need year-round.
Our desire is to change the hunger statistics in Guilford County by providing food and hope for every child."
