Repack Project @ Emergency Food Network
Feb 22 @ 9:00 am – 11:30 am

Volunteers at Emergency Food Network’s Repack Project prepare bulk foods for distribution by repackaging the foods into smaller, family-sized portions. Bulk foods include rice, beans, oats, frozen corn and peas, oranges, and apples. Once repackaged the food is ready to go out to the 68 Pierce County food pantries, meal sites, and shelters that we serve. Each year, volunteers repackage more than 1 million pounds of food or what is equivalent to 3 meals-a-day for 285 families!

No experience necessary! EFN staff will provide you with orientation, training, and supervision.

Qualifications:

  • Volunteers need to be able to lift up to 50 pounds either individually or with a partner (or bring a friend who can lift for you!).
  • When repacking produce, volunteers will need to be able to bend down to grab the produce out of bins that are floor-level.
  • The minimum age to volunteer at the Repack is 16 (youth ages 14-15 can volunteer with a parent or guardian).
  • Registration is required as space is limited.

To register, please contact volunteer@efoodnet.org or (253) 584-1040.

Are you with a group of 8 or more? Groups between 8 to 15 in size can reserve their own Repack Project! Repacks provide a great team-building experience while giving back to the community. Group Repacks can be scheduled Wednesday through Saturday with morning and afternoon sessions available. Give us a call at (253) 584-1040 to learn more.
