Catholic Charities Emergency Services could use volunteers to help raise awareness of fresh fruits and veggies available at the Food Shelf by offering taste testing to allow clients to sample unfamiliar produce before they select their items to take home.

Produce sampler will wash, cut and prepare fresh produce samples; greet clients and encourage tasting of produce samples while explaining how to use, prepare and safely preserve these products for later use; hand out tips for use and/or recipe of product sampled; conduct a quick survey to assess knowledge of product and if product was added to shopping cart; and clean and store equipment.
