Harvesters needs volunteers to handle large bread donation

Harvesters—The Community Food Network is putting out a call for extra volunteers this holiday weekend and next week.

Harvesters has received a wonderful, but unexpected, very large donation of bread, a spokesman said. The food bank needs the community’s help to sort and box the bread so that it can be distributed to nonprofit agencies feeding the hungry in this region.

Two-hour volunteer shifts are available beginning Friday and Saturday, April 18-19, and Tuesday through Saturday next week, April 22-26. Day and evening shifts are available.

The public may sign up for a shift by calling 816-929-3090 or emailing volunteer@harvesters.org. More information is available at www.harvesters.org.

Gifts of time through volunteering is one of the important ways our community helps Harvesters feed hungry people. During 2013, volunteers donated nearly 189,000 hours to the food bank.
