Several months ago, I volunteered for a project called Fork it Over part of the Beaverton School District’s Food redistribution program. This is a great project since it makes use of perishable items that would otherwise go to waste.
There was an article written in yesterday’s Oregonian about this program. They need more volunteers to make sure that the food is distributed from the schools to the food pantries that need it.
The job of the volunteer is only to transport food from one location to another. The whole job takes less than an hour. Check out their website and volunteer to be a helper once a month. You will be making sure food in our city doesn’t go to waste.
