Volunteer Groups needed for upcoming Produce Fairs

Looking for a rewarding team-building experience for your group or company?  Produce Fairs are perfect!

Between July and October, Homeport is seeking groups of 8 to 20 people to ensure that Central Ohio residents have access to free, fresh, and healthy produce.

Produce Fairs are a partnership between Homeport and the Mid-Ohio Foodbank, where our residents and neighbors are welcomed to our community centers where they can “shop” for fresh milk, juice, yogurt, fruits, and vegetables, all for free.

Volunteers are needed to set up tables and tents on the produce line, register shoppers, provide food to shoppers, offer cooking suggestions and recipes, help children and the elderly carry their groceries back to their apartments, and break down boxes and pallets. If leftover produce is available at the end of the fair, we could also use a few volunteers who don’t mind driving some of the produce to local food pantries on their way home.

Volunteer groups are needed from 1:30pm to 4:30pm on the following dates:

Thursday July 17 

Thursday August 28 

Tuesday September 2

Thursday October 2

Tuesday October 14

If your organization is interested in volunteering for one of these produce fair dates, please contact Morgen Wade, Manager of Volunteer Engagement, at morgen.wade@homeportohio.org or 614-545-4817.
