Volunteers

Edible Extras is a 501c3 organization based at First Church Coral Springs, 8650 W. Sample Road, Coral Springs. The church partners with us – allowing us to use space to process collected food and to park our trucks on their campus.

There are two ways that the community can volunteer to help support the mission of Edible Extras.

Weekly Food Processing Program

We pick up food on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Because we are all volunteers, we try to be as efficient as possible. Once the truck comes in, food is unloaded, sorted and prepared for distribution. Organizations come each day to pick up what has been collected.

Flexibility is helpful because we never know what kind of load we will get. The truck usually returns anywhere between 10 and 11 am. We meet at 10:00am and are usually finished by 11:30 or 12.

You are welcome to join us during that time on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. We are a small, fun and dedicated team of volunteers.

Contact us if you are interested.

Saturday Food Drives

From February through October we have food drives scheduled on Saturdays at area grocery stores. If you are interested in participating in these food drives, we can put you on our email distribution list so that you are kept informed of dates and locations to sign up. Students can receive service hours for their participation.
