Do you want to volunteer at the beginning of day? Do you want to help feed hungry folks? Help us rescue food from local grocery stores and bring it to our Food Shelf!! We need on-call drivers (affectionately known as Food Rescue Specialists) to pick up donations Monday - Friday. You will drive, using your own vehicle, to 3-4 stores to pick up specific donations at each store.

The Details:

Days: Monday thru Friday

Times: MWF 8-1 a.m.; T Th 10-noon

How many: 3-5 volunteers

Job Duties: Drive, using your own vehicle, to 1-5 local grocery stores and pick up specific donations labeled just for us! We'll call you when we have an opening. It could lead to a regular pick up if you're interetsed in a longer-term volunteer commitment to help feed the hungry.

Training:Ya sure, you betcha there will be training. (how very Minnesotan of us)

What do you need to bring? Smiles, strong muscles, willing and able to lift up to 50 pounds, willing to get dirty sometimes, willing to celebrate the glory that is food donations!! Yay food!! Oh yeah, and wear closed-toe, comfy shoes. It’s for health and safety reasons and it’s a concrete floor in most stores. You will need a background check ... details provided during orientation.

What’s in it for you? The knowledge that you will help feed people who come to shop at the Food Shelf. The food you rescue is used that day in our Food Shelf. HUGE!!!! You will make it happen!
