Volunteers are an important part of Feed the Hungry’s operations. In fact, it would be fair to say that we could not operate as effectively or efficiently without their dedicated support.
Weekly Warehouse Workers: A small group of regular volunteers meet at the Feed the Hungry Center (warehouse and operations facility) on Saturday morning every week that school is in session. In less than two hours, they efficiently sort, weigh, pack, and label shipments of the required dry-goods food items for each individual school kitchen, in accordance with the weekly requisitions. A second cadre arrives on Monday afternoon to sort and weigh fresh produce and add the required amount to each of the school-kitchen’s weekly delivery.
Weekly Drivers: On Tuesday morning regular drivers pick up and deliver the prepared shipments. Most of the schools, in poor, remote villages, can only be reached by miles of unpaved roads, difficult to access by car or SUV, especially during the rainy season. Volunteer drivers use their own vehicles and fuel to deliver food and kitchen supplies. Each driver has a designated school destination and makes the trip weekly, during Mexico’s late August thru early July school year. Please click here to meet our drivers.
Additional Opportunities: Each year Feed the Hungry San Miguel holds two fundraising events - generally in March and October. Volunteers provide talent and time to produce and execute these events.
Our Back to School (July) and Holiday (November) Mail Appeals are sorted, stuffed, and mailed by volunteers.
