WHAT TO BRING
- Bring yourself
- a bike;
- a helmet;
- a way to carry a bag of groceries (panniers, rack, basket, backpack, trailer); If you have a trailer, bring that. If not, we have ones you can borrow, and we're happy to show you how to use them too.
ACTIVITY: HOME DELIVERY We load up trailers with pre-packaged food bags, and deliver them to neighbors who are unable to visit the University District Food Bank in person. We deliver to both homes and apartments. Bring along a couple of friends and make your deliveries a fun group ride!
SNACKS Every week we'll have different snacks and treats for you to try once you arrive at the food bank! Coffee, tea, hot chocolate, and cold drinks will also be available for volunteers
