YaleWomen Connecticut is pleased to recreate one of our most popular community service projects. Tackle hunger in Connecticut with both YaleWomen Connecticut and members of the Yale Class of 1993 on Saturday, November 5 by sorting food at the Connecticut Food Bank’s new Wallingford warehouse during their busy pre-Thanksgiving period.
We will also participate in the Food Bank's Hunger 101 interactive group learning experience, which gives people a taste of what food insecurity—or hunger—really is. We will walk in someone else’s shoes and see firsthand what it’s like to struggle with poverty and food insecurity in Connecticut. After the learning activity we will volunteer in the warehouse preparing food for distribution.
This exciting volunteer opportunity is open to members of YaleWomen Connecticut and their family members/guests 12 and older. We hope to see you there!
Date: Saturday, November 5, 2016
Time: 10:30 am to 12:30 pm
Where: Connecticut Food Bank
Address: 2 Research Parkway, Wallingford, CT 06492
