Children aged 6+ are welcome and encouraged to join you for this event. Most of the projects at the warehouse involve inspecting, sorting, and repackaging of donated food items for community distribution.

For your safety, bags and purses are not allowed in project areas. Lockers are provided for storing any items you don't want to keep in your car, but keep personal and valuable items to a minimum (i.e., electronics, jewelry, money, etc.), as HFB is not responsible for lost, stolen, or damaged items.
