Drivers are required to count meals and drop off food at the Summer Feeding Service Program site locations that Helping Others Progress through Education non-profit sponsors. Our drivers make sure meals are delivered in a timely manner.
Monitors are critical to the successful operation of the Summer Feeding Service Program sites. They are the “eyes and ears,” providing valuable feedback about how the sites are operating by visiting sites on a regular basis and observing meal services.
Site Supervisors are assigned to a Summer Feeding Service Program site that Helping Others Progress through Education non-profit sponsors and are required to stay on that site for the entire meal service. They plan and organize daily site activities and hand out meals to the children at that location.
MAKE A DONATION
Donations help us purchase food, school supplies, book bags, and help young adults go off to college. Donations also help families improve health by increasing access to farm fresh produce and nutritional and culinary education .
BE A VOLUNTEER
Volunteering will help us be able to make a difference in our communities in York County and the surrounding areas.We rely on our volunteers to help prepare, package, and deliver school supplies and meals with love throughout the year.
