Fresh Food Co-op/Golden Backpack Program

The Golden Backpack Program is looking for summer volunteers to help at its Fresh Food Co-op located at New Hope Community Church, 16800 W. 9th Ave., Golden 80401. Twice a week the Co-op receives rescue food from local grocery stores in the Denver area (Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s and Sprouts). This food needs to be unloaded from the delivery truck, sorted, date/quality checked, and stocked onto the shelves. You must be 12 years or older to participate. Please register to volunteer at www.goldenbackpack.org
