StreetWise Mobile Food Pantry Distribution - Saturday 1-15-2022
Be a part of the helping hands to those families in need! StreetWise Georgia & The Atlanta Community Food Bank partner every month to provide pre-registered families with approximately 100 lbs. of food. Registered guests never have to get out of their vehicles. Guests drive through our parking lot, where StreetWise Ambassadors & Volunteers load their cars with boxes of food. Generally, our Mobile Food Pantry is on the second Saturday of every month. However, schedule dates may change to accommodate our other events.
Saturday, January 15th StreetWise Mobile Food Pantry
Volunteers can expect to be outside during most of the event. You will help sort food, prepare food boxes, and load the food boxes into client vehicles. Also, help registered guest’s check-in, direct traffic, hand out StreetWise flyers, and so much more. We can find a place for you!
Volunteers arrive by 8:45 A.M., and we will set up for the Mobile Food Pantry, then at 9:30 A.M. begin to serve over 270 registered families. With everyone pitching in, clean-up is a snap, and Volunteers are done by 1:00 P.M. You must have your own transportation. Volunteers under the age of 18 without transportation should not be dropped off.
Please wear comfortable clothing, tennis shoes preferred (no open-toed shoes), no earbuds or headphones for safety reasons, and leave personal belongings in the car or at home. We serve rain or shine, heat or cold, and sometimes in the snow! Check the weather forecast and dress appropriately to be outside. We can’t guarantee the weather, but we can guarantee smiles and laughter all around!
COVID-19 protocols: **Please do not come if you are sick, or not feeling well** We are committed to keeping our facilities clean and safe for our Clients and Volunteers. You will need to decline the volunteer invitation.
For your safety, we ask Volunteers to wear a mask. Try to bring your own, since our supply is limited and not guaranteed. Clients will not get out of their car, and there should be no physical contact with them.
Court-ordered volunteering only for non-violent crimes.
*If you are a High School or College Student that needs volunteer hours, we can give you documentation that you volunteered at StreetWise 501(c)(3) Nonprofit.

**Note: The line of registered Guests picking up food can go as far as Hwy 316. To avoid being caught in the line, you can also take Hwy 316 to Winder Hwy NE (Hwy 29) to Cedars Road.
