St. Paul's next group date will be Wednesday, July 22.
The program delivers fruits and vegetables to 21 different sites, one of which is only 2.3 miles from St. Paul’s — the Third Ward Multi-Service Center at 3611 Ennis St.
Volunteers are needed to unload and re-bag produce between 9 and 11 a.m. Wednesdays. The actual time commitment is usually between one and two hours, depending on the number of people who are helping.
The director of the program, Thati Moreira, noted that there is no official age limit. “We have moms that bring their babies and grandparents that bring their grandchildren. While the little ones are not able to help with the lifting and bagging, they can certainly be there.”
St. Paul’s clergy will be serving at the center on August 5 and invite others to join them. Or join with other groups from St. Paul’s on July 22 or 29. To be a part of any of these St. Paul's groups, please contact Kat Denton at email@example.com.
A wide variety of other volunteer opportunities also are available through the Houston Food Bank. To learn more about how you can help, please see their website: www.houstonfoodbank.org.
