Time Commitment: Once a week ClockClockClock

On Fridays from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Mission Circle volunteers stock the pantry and fill grocery orders for our neighbors. At the Community Resource Center in Encinitas, the clients include seniors, folks with disabilities and people that are going through an unexpected change in their lives where a helping hand is needed. They are all trying to improve their lives and become more self-sufficient or they are seniors who use the service to stretch their monthly grocery budget.

Picture it as a neighborhood grocery store with about 1,000 square feet of shelves of food. There are stacks of canned goods as well as racks of bread, fresh fruit, fresh veggies, and a case of dairy products. The CRC Food Pantry provides almost every kind of food — and a lot of hope to our neighbors going through a difficult phase in their lives.

It’s easy to sign up to participate in this program. The center is located at 650 Second Street in Encinitas. You can work for just one hour or stay for all four — but most people work in two hours shifts. This is a wonderful way to help our neighbors in need.
