Food Donations Drivers Needed at Downtown Orlando Nonprofit
Community Food & Outreach Center | 150 West Michigan Street
Description: The Community Food & Outreach Center is looking for a few interested volunteers to join their volunteer drivers team. Volunteer drivers handle small pick-ups of donated groceries from some of our local food market partners. This is an excellent on-going volunteer opportunity for one or two individuals with available time in their week and who drive a SUV, van or large car with a large enough trunk. Grocery Donation Pick-ups happen every weekday with the food being delivered to the Community Food & Outreach Center Cost Share Grocery just south of downtown Orlando near Michigan and Orange. Food donated by local grocery programs is available to members of the grocery program at 1/3 the cost of a commercial store. The Community Food and Outreach Center’s members pay no fee to join, they simply qualify based on their income level ($24,000/yr or below for an individual). We believe in offering a hand up and not a hand out and developed this sustainable model where the organization does not profit but rather shares the cost of running the operations with our members. Over 109,000 people used our program in 2013. We’re looking for a volunteer(s) who can commit to at least one location or more at least one day a week or more for a minimum of 13 weeks.
