Feeding Medina County would not be successful without the hands-on support of our amazing volunteers!
It takes between 30 – 50 volunteers a week to make our programs run smoothly.
Weekender Program Packing
We pack close to 1000 weekender bags a week in our warehouse. This job takes about 15 volunteers and 2 – 3 hours of time. Each bag is filled with 5 – 8 lbs of food, sealed and shelved for pick-up. These shifts are Wednesday and Thursday mornings, from 8:45am – 11:30am. It requires lifting and standing for long periods of time.
Staples For Seniors Packing
This job takes about 15 volunteers and 2 to 3 hours of time. Each bag is filled with 5 to 8 lbs of food, sealed and shelved for pick-up. These shifts are on the 3rd Friday of every month, from 8:45am – 11:30am. It requires lifting and standing for long periods of time.
FMC is always looking for volunteers to help deliver Weekender bags to participating schools and Staples for Senior bags (and bulk food items) to senior facilities with your own vehicle. Large SUVs & trucks are ideal, or you can consider setting up a team of people to tackle one delivery.
FMC Box Truck Drivers and Helpers
We need drivers and helpers on our FMC truck who will pick up food at Akron Canton Regional Food Bank or various stores, and deliver to FMC and food pantries throughout Medina County. You do not need a CDL however, you will need to be able to move pallets of food with equipment.
Monthly Food Distributions
Join us on the third Thursday of every month at the Medina County Fair Grounds, from 6am – 9am. Help package and fill trunks with food.
FMC Community Garden
Join us in the spring for planting day and several days through out the summer for harvesting.
