Good Shepherd Food-Bank is Maine's largest hunger relief organization and Food Sorters assist us with our staple program, the procurement and distribution of millions of pounds of food annually. To accomplish this task volunteers are needed to sort through donated product that comes to our warehouse in Auburn. This is a key role in our operations that allows us to accurately inventory and track donations.

Volunteers work in a team at a conveyor belt to receive food, inspect it for food safety and sort it into over 20 different categories.
