An estimated 100 RSVP volunteers will serve in 15 community ministry sites such as Second Harvest Food Bank, Salvation Army, soup kitchens, commodity food distributions, and other community ministry outreach organizations helping to distribute food and other necessities to assist the low- income population to meet their food and household needs.
