Veggie van won’t go without volunteers
TOWNSHEND- The COVID-19 pandemic has caused significant financial stress for many, making it harder to access food they need. The Vermont Foodbank has seen an increase in need at the local VeggieVanGo event, sponsored by Grace Cottage Hospital. In order to meet this need, organizers are looking for volunteer assistance from community members.
VeggieVanGo volunteer duties include sorting and putting produce into bags, lifting bags of produce or boxes of food into client cars, managing traffic flow, and cleaning up after the distribution. This volunteer job is in a fast-paced environment that involves bending, stooping, and lifting bags into cars. Volunteers will be standing for prolonged periods of time outside.
