AARP Members have experience, energy and a strong desire to "give back" and strengthen their communities. AARP Serves is an opportunity to come together and do just that. In February we will volunteer at Channel One Regional Food Bank, sorting and repackaging food donations for distribution at over 200 local agencies to feed our hungry neighbors.

Hunger is not an issue happening "elsewhere." There are thousands of people in Rochester and Southeast Minnesota in need of assistance to have enough to eat. Seniors on fixed incomes and people age 50-59 can be at particular risk for hunger, perhaps less able to adjust to increases in monthly expenses or not qualified for assistance available to families with young children. Let's make a difference!

Please note: there are two shifts to choose from, 3:30-5:30 or 6:00-8:00 p.m. The registration system will prompt you to make your choice. If you might like to volunteer for both, please only register for the first one. If the second one is not full, then you can stay.
