Distribute Food From the Farmers Market!

Social Justice through healthy food!

Easy and FUN volunteer opportunity for all ages!

JRUUC volunteers to help the Community Action Coalition for South Central WI collect leftover or donated food from vendors at the Saturday downtown Dane County Farmers Market. CAC’s food assistance programs create access to nutrition for people in the greatest need.

Everyone is welcome to help, so bring your friends and kids for these easy 75 minute volunteer opportunities. We gather at the CAC truck by the capitol building on the East Washington side around 11:45-noon. We all put on CAC vests as identification and split up into 4 groups, each with a cart and a quadrant of the market. 

Watch your weekly email for more dates or signup sheet, or contact Jocie Luglio. [Dates for Summer 2023 have been completed – watch for 2024 dates!]
