Volunteer opportunity: Fill the Food Shelf at Centro Tuesday, Jan. 4

The Centro Food Shelf, the only Latino-specific food shelf in Minneapolis, provides emergency staple foods — rice, beans, sugar and vegetable oil — for hungry families of all backgrounds and cultures across the Twin Cities metro area.

Centro receives deliveries every Tuesday and volunteers are needed to help unload, sort, weigh and repackage food for easy redistribution. Helping at this project frees staff, allowing them more time to meet with clients.

To sign up to volunteer on Jan. 4 or another Tuesday, email Naba Bakar through HandsOn Twin Cities.

Time: 11:15 a.m.-1:15 p.m.
Date: Tuesday, Jan. 4, 2011
Place: El Zócalo, 1915 Chicago Ave. S., Minneapolis, MN 55404
