SUNDAY 9/18 PMD COMMUNITY SERVICE OPPORTUNITY

WHAT    Help the free Boston Local Food Festival become a 
        zero waste event that focuses on 
        healthy food and fitness

WHEN    Sunday, September 18 
        1:15 to 6:15 PM, Rain or Shine

WHERE   Rose Kennedy Greenway, Boston

WHY     The free Boston Local Food Festival focuses on 
        healthy food and fitness by offering unique and
        interesting free events like a seafood throwdown, 
        chef and DIY demos, family fun zone, music, and entertainment.

        In order to reach <10% waste, PMD volunteers age 12+
        will team up at stations (while standing most of the time)
        to educate and to engage the public in reusing 
        event programs; composting food scraps and compostable
        cups, plates, forks, spoons, etc; and 
        recycling plastic containers, paper, and cardboard.

        Registered volunteers will receive free t-shirt, 
        and be able to explore this festival BEFORE the
        PMD shift begins.

HOW     Sign up asap (no later than 9/9) at
        http://www.pmd.org/s/091816.htm

        Incomplete submissions cannot be honored.
        Individuals may only sign up themselves
        (and may not reserve spaces for others).
        Participation is required for the entire
        project time span.
