Market Day is Saturday, January 26, 9:30 am – 1 pm. The Mercado is a charitable food bank that operates as a grocery store. It is near Mexican Town with an immigrant target market. A family member shops by appointment and may fill a shopping cart with anything in the store. Limits on how much food in each category may be taken are set to make it fair for small families or large ones. Volunteers assist with interpreting these rules, re-stocking shelves and getting food into cars.
We are looking for 10 volunteers. We hope to have some who have never been to the Mercado before. Spanish or Arabic as a second language is a plus – but it is not required to help. We’ll take the van from the church, departing at 8:45 am. Lunch in Mexican Village is always a fun option. Let Cheryl know if you are interested in lunch so we can plan when the van will return. Sign up at our front desk or email Cheryl Littleton with questions or to reserve a spot for you!
