Kinship Community Food Center In-Person Project: Serving Pantry Guests
June 28 @ 3:30 pm - 6:00 pm
Work with your child at the Kinship Community Food Center (formerly called Riverwest Food Pantry) – an organization focused on coming together around food to relieve hunger, improve lives and grow community well-being. While their name has changed, their mission is still the same! Your child will be immersed in an environment where they will experience their capabilities to help others and also be mentored in acts of dignity and grace by those very same people. The Kinship Community Food Center embodies their motto: In a community of generosity everyone gives and everyone receives.
Impact: Help to eliminate food insecurity in Milwaukee.
Activities: You and your child will assist shoppers with registration and grocery selection, help shoppers carry bags, serve snacks to shoppers and clean up. Hands-on orientation and assignments given upon arrival.
This month volunteers will help serve homemade granola baked by KIC families who are participating in our Kinship Community Food Center At Home Project. Interested families might even want to sign up for both opportunities!
We will also be collecting reusable bags to donate to the pantry. Their goal is to eliminate as many plastic shopping bags as possible. If you have extra reusable bags at home, please consider bringing some with you to donate!
