What do I do when I arrive at the event?
Upon your arrival, please look for our volunteer check-in booth, which will be located at the East end of the park. At the booth, you will be assigned a job, and then a team captain will clearly explain your responsibilities.

You must be at least 14 years of age accompanied by an adult chaperone to volunteer at Eat & Be Well.
Do I need to have a Food Handler card to serve food?

Can I help if I do not have a Food Handler’s card?
Yes. There are plenty of other volunteer opportunities available on the day of the event.
Do I need to sign up to volunteer ahead of time?
