24 Hour Hunger Action Month Sort-A-Thon

September 8 @ 8:00 am - September 9 @ 5:00 pm
  • This event has passed.

Although we have year-round volunteer opportunities, Hunger Action Month brings exciting events that occur only once per year, and our 24-HOUR SORT-A-THON is one of those events! For 24 hours, volunteers will sort donated food during eight shifts of three hours each (per location). Be a part of the comradery, fun, and thousands of pounds of food sorted for those struggling with food insecurity! We’re hosting the Sort-A-Thon at both locations, the Main Warehouse in Pembroke Park and Feeding Palm Beach County in Boynton Beach.
