Volunteers will help to provide free supplemental grocery packages for low-income seniors by participating in the following activities:

* Greeting guests and asking them to fill out the sign-in sheet, so we can make sure we are seeing people in the order that they came

* Calling participants to remind them about when they can come in to pick up their package

* Assembling grocery packages based on a set menu

* Restocking food pantry

* Administrative tasks

* Volunteers must be able to lift at least 30 pounds
