REPORT FOR DUTY ON:  FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 2019 (2-hour shifts from 8 am-8 pm)
2-hour repack shifts will be available from 8 am until 8 pm.  Individuals and groups (age 10+) of up to 30 volunteers will be repacking bulk product into family size portions to be distributed to more than 160 food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters and other emergency feeding programs across EIF’s 18-county region.  Please note: any volunteer 10-13 years old must be accompanied by an adult.

REGISTRATION INFORMATION COMING SOON - PLEASE CHECK BACK! 

LOCATION: Repacking will be held at EIF (2405 North Shore Drive, Urbana)

GEAR NEEDED:  Please wear closed-toed shoes and remove all jewelry.  To comply with food safety standards any volunteer not wearing closed-toed shoes will not be able to repack.

BEFORE YOU REPACK INSTRUCTIONS:

  • To make sure we don’t go over room capacity, please do not attend a repack without registering first.
  • All repacks MUST wear closed-toed shoes.
  • We heavily depend on volunteers to repack bulk food product so if you register and then can’t attend please remove your name from the SignUp Genius event.
  • If you show any signs of cold, flu or sickness please abstain from repackaging food.
  • If you  have any food allergies please check with Emily as to what will be repacked.
  • Please arrive to your shift on time. Explaining repack instructions to one full group is easier on us and decreases the likelihood of repackaging/inventory errors.
