Volunteer with Mokuyokai at Richmond Food Bank, Sat, Nov 16, 9:30-11:00am (full)

- Update November 13th: this event is now full; thanks for the great response!
- Update November 11th: there are still a few spots for this, be sure to rsvp!-

On Saturday, November 16, 2013, Mokuyokai Past President, Erika Thomas, invites ten members or friends to volunteer at the Richmond Food Bank. During this short session, we will learn how the Richmond Food Bank connects the public to community services they may need and not just distribute food each week. We will be sorting canned food items and working with their Food Bank team. This a great way to learn about the Richmond Food Bank and give a little to the community.

"The Richmond Food Bank is a dynamic hub that connects people, food, and services that are essential to health and well being – the hallmark of a caring community.". More info and a video about the Richmond Food Bank is at: http://richmondfoodbank.org/
