We Love Our Volunteers
What is required to volunteer?
We require all volunteers to sign and complete our Volunteer Waiver. Once this is completed, anyone can volunteer. We do expect a level of professionalism and respect that will represent the community well. Please be aware that all volunteers are required to wear closed toe shoes.
Are children allowed to volunteer?
During the Covid-19 Crisis, we are asking that only families that have come before bring children that are 10 and older. If it’s your first time, please hold off until the stay-at-home orders have been lifted.
For most things, children are allowed and will enjoy volunteering. However, there are several shifts that for various safety or logistics reasons, children are not allowed. Children under the age of 14 must be accompanied by an adult during the entire shift. The best place for children to help out with the food bank is with our Grocery Store Food Drives.
Do I need special training to volunteer?
On your first shift, we’ll give you a tour of the food bank so you have an idea of what it is we do and to share our mission. Then we’ll work on plugging you in to that day’s work. We will pair you up with a seasoned volunteer to help guid you through the work. As you become more comfortable, there will be different opportunities in different postions. We suggest everyone move around a bit and try us out a few shifts to see where you can fit in with us. If you have the time and want, there are possible opportunities to help out with our specialized positions like computer intake and riding or driving our delivery truck.
