Time, Training, and Travel
Time commitment will vary depending on the phase of the program, event and meeting dates, and volunteer preference. Typically, events are between 2 and 4 hours long. Presentations are typically no longer than 30 minutes, but volunteers may choose to stay for questions, comments, and/or the duration of a meeting, which could be up to 2 hours. Volunteers will be paired with either a staff member or other volunteer. The volunteer will receive training on the Double Up program in Michigan and all responsibilities and policies relevant to the role. Local travel to events and community organizations is expected.
Fair Food Network’s Double Up Food Bucks program doubles the value of SNAP benefits, or food stamps, helping people bring home more fruits and vegetables while supporting local farmers. Find more information at www.DoubleUpFoodBucks.org
