Grinnell-in-the-Twin Cities: Second Harvest Heartland Service Project

Kristin Stout ’89 and the Grinnell-in-the-Twin Cities regional network planning committee invite you to volunteer with your fellow Grinnellians at the Second Harvest Heartland food bank. It's a great way to help fight food insecurity and connect with your local community.

The group will meet at 5:45 p.m. at Second Harvest Heartland and will work the 6-8 p.m. shift. Volunteers will help with packing, sorting, and labeling food.

Special Notes

  • Volunteers must be at least 8 years-old and children between ages 8-15 must have an adult chaperone with them. One adult can chaperone up to 10 youth volunteers.
  • While most of the positions are active and require volunteers to bend and lift items, Second Harvest Heartland will provide stools for those who need them or can suggest volunteer activities that require less physical activity. Let us know in your registration form if you have any special needs.

Dress Code

  • Shirts must cover the shoulders, armpits, and bellies (no tank tops or crop tops) for food safety purposes.
  • Closed-toe shoes are required.
  • All clothing should be appropriate for handling food and not have loose, dangling beads or other articles which can be a physical contaminant.
  • Comfortable clothing that you don't mind getting dirty is preferred.
  • We suggest you dress in layers to remain comfortable while working as temperature can fluctuate.
  • No jewelry. When you are in the packing areas, you will be asked to remove all jewelry.
  • Lockers are available on-site to store belongings.
