The THI Veggie Chop Shop is a community meal program utilizes produce donated by area farmers’ markets and home gardeners turning it into meals for the food insecure right here in Milwaukee.
We are heading into the middle of the season, and we still need volunteers across all areas of the program!
We need Gleaners! There are 3 opportunities for gleaning for VCS, each lasting 1-2 hours max.
• Sundays at Fondy, from 1-2. The food then gets dropped off at Congregation Sinai. Sign up to help with that here!
• Tuesdays at Thiensville, from 2-3pm. The produce then gets dropped off at the west entrance of the JCC. Sign up to help with that here!
• Wednesdays at Brown Deer, from 4-4:45pm. The produce then gets dropped off at the west entrance of the JCC. Sign up to help with that here!
We need Choppers/washers/cooks! On Tuesdays, we cook the produce received from Fondy on Sunday and we need some help in the kitchen. We are in the kitchen at Congregation Sinai in Fox Point from 9am-3:30pm, but whatever time you can give is greatly appreciated! Sign up for that here!
We need delivery drivers! Also on Tuesdays, the food we cook gets distributed to various services throughout the Milwaukee metro area. Delivery drivers are asked to show up at about 2:45 and typically have 2 deliveries a piece. Sign up to help with that here!
Have a bumper crop from your home/business’s garden? We will happily take it off your hands. You can drop it off at Congregation Sinai on Sundays from 2-3 or Tuesday mornings until 11am.
Have a group that wants to volunteer? We love having groups join us! Let us know if volunteering with VCS works with your schedule! Contact Sarah at email@example.com.
