Food For Thought is a nonprofit organization dedicated to meeting the nutrition needs of people living with serious medical conditions while at risk of malnutrition and food insecurity. We host market-based food drives throughout the year, visiting partner-stores with the support of their management. We visit both Sebastopol’s Safeway and Pacific Market monthly and would LOVE to add new volunteers to the team. Orientation/training will be provided to first-time volunteers. After that–folks can sign up as they see fit.

Volunteers sign up for a shift running 10-12:30, 12:30-3pm, or 3-5pm. They greet shoppers as they enter the store, offering a flier with a list of Food For Thought’s most needed items that week, then enthusiastically thank folks when they drop off donations as they leave. It is a FUN and DYNAMIC process which builds connection and hope in our community. People often thank our volunteers for being there and making it so easy to help neighbors in need. This is a FABULOUS opportunity for kids and teens to volunteer either with their parents or as a group of teens depending on age and parental permission.
