Helping Hands Food Distribution (Outdoor event)

Next date is Saturday, July 2nd, 2022 from 7:30am to 10:45am (ET)


Update 5/2/2022: Helping Hands is an assembly line & drive thru food distribution. There are roles that are inside, outside, and both! There will still be a decent chance you will have some outdoor exposure so please dress appropriately, you can always shed layers!* 

Helping Hands is CHFB's primary food distribution volunteer event! Join us each Saturday morning as we distribute thousands of pounds of food to hundreds of families. A surefire way to feed your soul, and make a massive impact on our nine county service area!

Please arrive at 999 E. Tillman by 7:30 AM, you will need to park in the Fire Police, City County Credit Union, Midwest America Credit Union, or Domino's Pizza parking lots. All of these are directly next to CHFB. 

Enter in through the “Volunteer Entrance” door. Please check in with me, Adam Roby, at the Volunteer Manager Desk / check-in table set up where you can register your attendance on an iPad (if you registered online) or by using the paper sign-in sheet. We will assign positions by 7:40AM and will begin the Drive Through very close to 7:45AM. Helping Hands is scheduled until 11AM, but on average, finishes early.
