Volunteers will come together Oct. 13 to give the Healdsburg Food Pantry a fresh supply of homemade tomato sauce.
The event, organized by Farm to Pantry and the Healdsburg Soroptimists, still needs volunteers, tomatoes and new, quart-sized jars.
Volunteers will can in two shifts–9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and noon to 4 p.m.–on Oct. 13 at The Villa Annex Kitchen at Villa Chanticleer, 1248 N. Fitch Mountain Road. A canning expert will be on hand to help, and volunteers will share a potluck lunch between the two shifts, according to a press release.
Those who can't attend but still want to help can drop off jars or tomatoes from 9 a.m. to noon on Oct. 11 or 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Oct. 12 at the Healdsburg Food Pantry, 1505 Healdsburg Ave.
"Volunteers are needed the day before the event to transport tomatoes, jars and neighbors to the Villa Annex Kitchen," organizers said in a press release. "All volunteers should RSVP in advance to Melita Love at 707-431-0425 or email@example.com."
