FOOD: Fresh Market Distribution



As a volunteer, you'll support older adults in making healthy eating decisions and have the opportunity to interact with older adults and hear their stories.

College Avenue is proud to offer bi-monthly farmer's market to its older adult members to give them easier access to fresh produce. Volunteers are needed to help receive the delivery of produce from the Hand Up Youth Food Pantry at JFS, set up the display using burlap and wooden boxes, distribute the fresh produce and re-fill bins as needed.

The College Avenue Social Wellness Center is one of two thriving JFS older adult centers. Hundreds of participants enjoy daily meals, exercise classes, art classes, games, cultural programs, and live entertainment. This is a home away from home for many older adults.

  • Physical Ability: Ability to stand for the duration of the project and can lift bins that are 25-35 pounds.

  • Attire: Closed-toe shoes are required. If weather permits, this project will take place outside.
