Social Media For Social Good – Food Drive Tweet Up!

In recognition of Hunger Action Month, help end hunger by participating in these HAM-up events with your friends from Twitter.

What’s a HAM-up Tweet-up?
A Tweet-up is when people following each other on Twitter meet in real life. In recognition of Hunger Action Month, we’re calling this special Tweet-up the “HAM-up”. Clever, huh?

Volunteer in Product Recovery
1 – 4 p.m.
Adult volunteers only
Volunteering in Product Recovery gives you an inside look at the Food Bank’s work, as you evaluate donated products to determine what is safe for distribution. “Recovered” items are then sorted, boxed and made available for distribution to Partner Agencies and their clients. Learn more about Product Recovery. You must pre-register to volunteer. Only 65 slots are available. Register Online.

“Drive Through” Food Drive
Bring healthy, nonperishable food items to the Food Bank. Go through our “drive through” and volunteers will accept your food and financial donations without you needing to leave your vehicle. Donating has never been so easy!

Warehouse Open House
On every half-hour, Food Bank staff will take guests on a tour of our 54,000 square foot warehouse. Learn the ins-and-outs of food banking, and how your donation helps nourish hungry Central Texans.
