This is a great program that benefits both local farmers and those eligible for WIC Voucher benefits. We purchase fresh produce from local farmers and sell it at cost to make it affordable. Hosting these markets at WIC clinics offer solutions to area food deserts and alleviate transportation issues to the nearest grocery store with fresh produce.
WHEN? April - October on Tuesday mornings 7:30 to early afternoon (end time dependent on when we run out of produce). You are welcome to volunteer the entire shift or you can choose your own hours during that timeframe if you'd prefer
WHO? Ages 18+
WHERE? The Buckner WIC Clinic is located at 3302 Buckner Blvd. #130 Dallas, TX 75228. The Ledbetter WIC Clinic is located at 111 West Ledbetter Dr. #600 Dallas, TX 75224
With a shop (Market Provisions Co) inside The Market and a farm stand out in The Shed on the weekends, there will always be work to be done at the market downtown. You will help with a variety of duties related to produce stocking, store management, etc. You will also assist with SNAP transactions. This is a perfect opportunity to learn more information about the market, local farmers and artisan vendors in the area.
WHEN? Saturdays and Sundays
WHO? All ages. Children welcome with accompanying parent.
While our current programs are best fit for individual volunteers, we will have group volunteer opportunities in a community garden soon! Contact email@example.com for more information.
