We have the means. We need the manpower.
Close to a thousand people go to sleep hungry every night in our community. Yet, The Salvation Army Mobile Canteen sits in a parking lot because there aren’t enough hands to help distribute the meals available.
We need your hands and your hearts. If your church, business, or other organization can commit one day a month, you can help us in winning the fight against hunger. We provide the vehicle, the food and locations to serve the hungry…all we need is your support.
Volunteers need to be at least 16 years of age and accompanied by an adult if under the age of 18.
How to help
- Contact your local Health & Human Services Department to obtain a Food Handler’s Card, or take the class online: www.virginia.foodhandlerclasses.com.
- Round up a team of volunteers to adopt the Canteen for one day of the month.
- Contact Heather Tebbenhoff to register your group!
- Hold a food & supply drive to help collect items needed for your distribution.
