      Join University of Scranton alumni, parents, students and friends as we volunteer with City Harvest at St.Mary's Park Mobile Market. Volunteers will be stationed at 3-4 market tables, each supplied with thousands of pounds of fresh produce that they will help distribute to eligible market-goers. As the market-goers stop by each table, volunteers greet them and then weigh and bag the produce. All food is distributed free of charge.

      Requirements: Volunteers must be 18 years of age to participate. The Mobile Markets take place outdoors, rain or shine. We stress that it is important to wear comfortable, weather appropriate clothes. As this is a hands-on activity and there is no secure place to leave your property, it is recommended that you travel light.

      All volunteers need to register with City Harvest. Click here to complete the form.

      Please come out to this meaningful project and make a difference!
