For your safety:

Beginning September 1, closed toed shoes will be required for all warehouse and Fresh Mobile Market volunteers. No sandals or flip flops, please! Also, any volunteers under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a parent.

Out of the Garden is sorry that we are unable to accept court appointed volunteer hours.

We look forward to meeting you at the OOGTP Warehouse. Your donation of time is invaluable in helping us get our bags and supplies ready each week. Please click the day of the week you’d like to volunteer to sign up!

 


*Holiday hours for warehouse:  

Closed:  December 20 – December 28 & December 31 – January 4, 2016

Open: December 29 12pm – 2pm & December 30 6pm – 8pm


 Group Instructions (give notice, etc):

Groups are welcome at Out of the Garden!  We often find that many churches, youth groups, corporate offices, and others want to come together to serve at Out of the Garden.  Our only ask is that if you are coming in a group of more than 10, please email don@outofthegardenproject.org to confirm availability.


Other Volunteer Opportunities:

Pickup/Deliver Donations: Volunteers are needed to pick up food donations from various grocery stores in Greensboro and High Point between the hours of 10:00 am and 12:00 noon and bring them to the warehouse. Generally, these pickups involve 1-6 boxes of food. Volunteers should be able to lift 50 pounds. If you’re interested in volunteering contact Nikki at volunteer@outofthegardenproject.org.


Food Reclamation: Food insecurity is a big topic of conversation right now in Guilford County as we were named the hungriest area of the United States.We are beginning a new Food Reclamation Initiative that will allow us to feed children an evening meal at the Greensboro Recreation sites and the new Caldcleugh Boys and Girls Club site, and will save nearly 300,000 pounds of food from our landfill.

More schools and after-school programs will be added, so keep checking back!
