Filling Carts & Hearts at Friedens Community Food Center – Despensa De La Paz

  • 07/29/2023
  • 9:15 AM – 11:30 PM
  • 1615 S 22nd Milwaukee WI

Overview:

We have been invited to provide much-need hands to support the work at Friedens Community Food Center’s Despensa De La Paz location. We are excited for this new opportunity and are so glad they reached out to let us know about their immediate and ongoing needs for volunteers.  

Friedens is Milwaukee’s largest network of food centers and work to build community through nourishment. They have 4 locations and each year they serve 45,000 individuals and families in need of nourishment and friendship. They also work to reduce food waste and provide food demos and teach gardening to support nutrition and wellness.  

What to expect:

While we always like to stay flexible (especially with new partners) the needs during our shift may vary from helping with hospitality, inspiring creativity at the kids art table, and shopping with community members through the pantry. 

Capacity & Age Recommendations:

All ages are welcome at this project, however, since it’s our first time there it may be better suited for children over age 5. All kids should be directly supervised by an adult throughout our time there. 

What to bring:

It is REQUIRED for every adult to not only sign up here with Sunbeam Kids, but also fill this form out ahead of the project. https://friedenspantry.org/new-volunteer-form/

No need to bring anything unless you’d like to donate food products or art supplies. 

What to wear:

Kids should wear their Sunbeam Kids shirts if they want! (we hope they want to, but never want it to be a reason they don’t want to come). 

Additional information:

There is plenty of street parking. 

REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED. 

This project is currently open to members. Please only sign up if you know you can attend. We understand illness and emergencies do come up but they are counting on our hands, so if you register and can no longer attend, please let us know ASAP so we can work to fill your spot. 

Please note: Dates and times are subject to change, and occasionally events may be cancelled. Please check the event website to confirm the latest details: (Hey! It’s Shopping Time MKE!)
