Foodwise Volunteer Orientation

Saturday, June 8, 2024, 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Make new friends, gain valuable skills, and give back by volunteering with Foodwise, the educational nonprofit that runs the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market and Mission Community Market in San Francisco. Foodwise depends on dedicated volunteers to support our farmers markets and education programs, such as Foodwise Kids and Foodwise Teens.

Please join us for an orientation at the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market on Saturday, June 8, from 10 to 11 am, to learn more about ways you can support our mission to grow thriving communities through the power and joy of local food. Please meet at the Foodwise Classroom (green tent in front of the Ferry Building) at 10 am.

During the orientation, we’ll cover:

  • What is a healthy food system
  • History and background of Foodwise
  • Our farmers markets and education programs
  • Volunteer opportunities, benefits, and policies

The Foodwise team will be available to answer your questions. To learn more about the various volunteer opportunities at Foodwise, visit this link.
