Food bank needs volunteers for produce picking

The Second Harvest Food Bank of Northwest Pennsylvania is looking for individual and group volunteers to pick usable leftovers from fields and orchards after the harvest.

“Our goal this year is to obtain as much produce as we can since produce is high in nutrition and low in fat and sodium,” the food bank wrote on Volunteer Match.

The food bank will compile a list of interested volunteers. Due to the nature of the activity, volunteers will often be given 24 hours notice before a shift.

Food-picking opportunities may arise before the harvest as well. Second Harvest Food Bank predicts this opportunity will run from the spring until November.

To participate, visit Volunteer Match or contact Brian McCaleb at 459-3663, ext. 106, or volunteer@eriefoodbank.org.

Want to help out but can’t participate in the food-picking? Second Harvest Food Bank of Northwest Pennsylvania has several opportunities.
