FAB: Food Security Spring Weekend Trip 2017

Filed under Opportunities, Service on January 16, 2017.

There is a great service trip with Florida Alternative Breaks (FAB) through the David and Wanda Brown Center for Leadership and Service this upcoming 2017 Spring Break. The trip focuses on Food Security and will be at Nashville, Tennessee where we will work in collaboration with Second Harvest Food Bank.

Second Harvest is one of the largest food banks and distribution centers nationwide. It was designed to collect food that would otherwise be wasted, inspect and sort the food, and distribute the food to soup kitchens and neighboring shelters to serve those in Middle Tennessee experiencing food insecurity. Volunteers will spend their days working with the wonderful staff of Second Harvest Food Bank where they will pack, sort and organize literally tons of donated food meant for soup kitchens and residents of underserved communities.
