Shift Description:

The project depends on the needs of the Oregon Food Bank Network. Volunteer shifts can include multiple projects. Volunteers should be prepared for a potentially cool warehouse setting. To keep hands warm we provide liners for the food-safe gloves. The shift might entail one or more of the following tasks:

  • Sort canned and boxed food donations into categories
  • Repack and label bulk food items into family-size portions
  • Cull and sort produce
  • PLEASE NOTE: The length of a shift is directly related to the amount of food we receive. The end time is the latest the shift will go, but may end earlier.
