Transportation & Logistics Council Gives Back! - Feeding Northeast Florida

Feeding Northeast Florida is a big player in the local community and partners with numerous logistics organizations both locally and as part of a nationwide network. 

In an effort to give back to the community, the Transportation & Logistics Council is inviting all families and friends to volunteer with us at Feeding Northeast Florida's foodbank on November 18th.

Feeding Northeast Florida loves for people to bring their families when they're able, but they do have to limit ages due to the warehouse setting and the machinery used. Please remember to dress comfortably and wear tennis shoes. Things can get a little dirty!

Ages 8 - 11: a 1:1 ratio of adults to children required
Ages 12 - 15: a 1:5 ratio of adults to teenagers required
