Help Jeffco Eats provide non-perishable food to families in our community facing financial challenges and food insecurity. We need up to 20 HEALTHY people every Friday to help with the following activities:

•       pack doubled grocery bags with 7-9 items; up to 700 per week

•       Set up tables that will be used for packing

•       Help move food we are packing from our storage room to the pack room

•       open packaging, break down boxes  

•       vacuum floors and wipe tables before and after  

•       Moving all empty bins down to the packing area

•       Rearrange food within our storage place

•       Repacking new bins back into the storage place that the packers packed that morning; up to 700 per week is packed

•       Unloading our 14-FT U-Haul truck that comes from the Food Bank of the Rockies every week with cases of non-perishable food; enough to pack 900 bags

We encourage all ages and abilities to volunteer in the areas they feel most comfortable in. The max weight to lift or carry when unloading the truck or moving food is 50 pounds using lifting safety methods and equipment such as dollies and wagons. We meet every Friday at Lakewood United Methodist Church at 1390 Brentwood St, Lakewood, CO 80214 from 9a-11a. Parking is free and ample. Small groups and older children are welcome with an adult. We pack inside in a large room, but we observe social-distancing guidelines.
