We hope that everyone is doing well for the start of 2021. Being half way through the 2020/21 School Year, we wanted to share an update on our services, including updates to our volunteer program and needs.
  • New Volunteer Coordinator!
    • Please welcome Morgan Pixley who joined the team early this fall and has been leading the planning of our volunteer shifts. 
  • Modified Backpack Services Re-Launched in Okaloosa County
    • Since the end of January, we have been able to deliver backpacks of food to the schools in Okaloosa County instead of the curbside services
Volunteer Needs 
  • Full Circle Garden Help (Destin)
    • With Spring quickly approaching, we are in need of a few volunteers to help maintain the garden at the Destin Pantry (weekly), along with help planting and harvesting the garden
  • Support for Okaloosa County Modified Backpack program
    • Assistance packing bags (Wednesday - Destin Pantry) and delivering the bags of food to the schools in Okaloosa County
  • New Upcoming Opportunities in Walton County
    • There will be some changes in our volunteer needs the end of February; details are still TBD, but we are looking specifically for volunteers able to help in Walton County
If you have any questions and/are able to assist with any of the above programs, please reach out to Morgan via email: morgan@fftfl.org

*We continue to follow all health and safety protocol for all volunteer shifts; limiting groups to 10 or less, requiring face masks and implementing social distancing as much as possible. Learn more here
