Here we thought the saying was, "April showers bring May flowers!" Why is it snowing!? Wouldn't it be amazing to be collecting food, sorting food, and feeding the hungry while in weather like in Hawaii rather than Upstate NY? Check out Aloha Harvest! Let's set up a volunteer day in Hawaii! Who's with us?

But before we go to Hawaii, we need help here at our Rochester Public Market! Have you seen the new button on our site? It looks like this: Click to View Volunteer Opportunities on VolunteerSpot Clicking it allows you to go to Volunteer Spot and sign up for spot(s) that FCP is in need of! Please RSVP by signing up so we know who and how many to expect!
